NEW ORLEANS (AP) — BP PLC’s $18.7 billion settlement for its 2010 oil spill doesn’t end lawsuits filed by two public university systems against the oil giant.

The University of Louisiana and the Southern University systems say the spill cost them a total of $274 million.

The New Orleans Advocate reports that since many details are under wraps, it hasn’t been clear whether the settlement includes the universities.

Attorneys handling the university systems’ claims issued a statement Monday saying they believe those claims remain open.

The Louisiana attorney general’s office did not respond to requests for comment. BP spokesman Geoff Morrell declined comment.

The Mississippi Attorney General’s Office says no public colleges or universities in Mississippi filed claims against BP.

The University of West Florida in Pensacola says it settled its claims.
