A class-action settlement against BP goes to a federal court judge today, after the petroleum company told tainted gas in the summer of 2012.

A federal court judge is scheduled to hear this morning from attorneys involved in the class-action settlement between BP and vehicle owners who were affected by tainted gasoline refined in Whiting in late summer 2012.

The “Price et al versus BP Products North America” settlement fairness hearing will be held in a courtroom in Chicago.

After the hearing, the judge will decide whether to approve the settlement.

Improperly-formulated gasoline was shipped out from the BP Whiting refinery to retail outlets in Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and one Ohio outlet from Aug. 13 through Sept. 7, 2012.

Individual payouts could range from $50 for the cost of the gasoline to $1,500 to cover the cost of engine repairs.
