Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood said today that he plans to be in Washington, D.C., on Monday to begin inspecting records of the Gulf Coast Claims Facility headed by Kenneth Feinberg.

Hood said he wants to inspect the manuals on how claims were to be paid. Specifically, he wants to see if payments were being delayed by continually asking residents and business owners for more paperwork after the initial claim was filed.

Hood made the comments during the Southern Gaming Summit today at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum Convention Center.
