Fraud allegations at issue in oil spill hearing

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — BP's allegations of fraud against a prominent Texas lawyer are at issue in a federal court hearing.

Wednesday's hearing involves claims by the oil giant that attorney Mikal Watts falsely claimed to represent thousands of deckhands who lost money in the 2010 Gulf oil spill.
