    • i read about this elsewhere a month ago. people (not BP) were suing the company that runs the fireboats for destabilizing the rig--apparently its SoP to ensure that one does not throw so much water on it that it collapses.

      this is a legal quagmire that will drag on and on and on and on for ages. people who immediately assume that BP will be stuck with the whole bill are not appreciating just how much room there is for BP lawyers to maneuver.
