BP looking to get oil spill money back

BP is asking for some of its money back.

The company says it paid millions of dollars in over payments to some businesses that claimed losses due to the 2010 oil spill.

In a Friday court ruling, BP asked a federal judge to order restitution plus interest.

BP points to a revised policy for calculating losses that was approved by the court in May.

The company says the court should order recalculation of money paid prior to the change.

In the meantime, BP also continues its legal fight on whether businesses have to prove they were directly harmed by the 2010 oil spill to collect money.
