BP went after three companies yesterday with lawsuits for "misconduct" (ha!) and for tarnishing its good name over the Gulf of Mexico oil spill last year, most notably Halliburton. Yesterday's filing blasts Halliburton for "improper conduct, errors and omissions, including fraud and concealment," and it is thought the company is seeking some $42 billion in damages. But don't worry, Halliburton is used to this sort of thing. They'll probably be just fine.

Maybe we all owe BP — and especially poor Tony Hayward — an apology for being so mean?
