GALVESTON — At 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 6 2006 Galveston attorney Tony Buzbee scored an important victory in a case involving 52 victims of the 2005 explosion at BP’s Texas City refinery. Minutes after the hearing Buzbee took the judge who made the ruling U.S. District Judge Samuel B. Kent to lunch said a witness who asked not to be named for fear of reprisal.

Buzbee and a lawyer for the judge didn’t confirm Friday whether the lunch took place. But if it did there was nothing improper about it they said.
