Casino workers protesting nonpayment of BP claims

About 30 employees of seven Coast casinos were lining up Monday morning at Porter Avenue and U.S. 90 with protest signs over nonpayment of their BP catastrophe claims.

Casino workers say they are upset because because the Gulf Coast claims facility run by attorney Kenneth Feinberg is denying their claims while paying workers in other industries.

Workers plan to continue the protest all morning.
