KODIAK, Alaska -- A settlement fund set up to pay plaintiffs from lawsuits stemming from the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill still has about $1 million left to disperse.
KMXT reported that about 900 people haven't claimed money from the Exxon Qualified Settlement Fund.
Plaintiffs' attorney Dave Oesting of Anchorage said there will be one last push to find these people.
If these people can't be found, the money will have to be turned over to the states from their last known address. The claimants are from many places in the Lower 48, including California, Oregon and Washington state.
Oesting also said if a claimant has died, his or her heirs are entitled are the settlement funds.
