Texas Attorney General Sues BP

If the disaster in the Gulf hasn't given BP enough trouble, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott will.

Abbott said the company illegally emitted nearly half a million pounds of air pollutants at its Texas city refinery for more than a month this Spring.

BP could be fined up to $25,000 per day for each violation.

The Texas city refinery is the nation's third-largest, about 30 miles south of Houston.
