NPR's Morning Edition quoted Fordham Law Professor Howard M. Erichson during its June 15, 2010, coverage of BP's plan to cover future claims resulting from the recent oil spill.

Erichson explained, "By setting up a fund, it can generate some political goodwill—some public relations goodwill—and maybe put itself in a position where the compensation process will be more efficient, simpler, and less troublesome."
