Switching sides in the BP case

Prominent Texas attorney Ronald Krist represented four clients who filed claims against the oil giant over the 2005 Texas City explosion, then after negotiating settlements for them switched over to begin representing BP against other claimants' suits. But did he take proper care of the first set of clients' interests? Former client Jose Elizondo claims he didn't, Krist disputes the allegations, and as Brenda Sapino Jeffreys reports in Texas Lawyer, messy litigation is underway over the whole episode, with none other than John O'Quinn representing Elizondo.
