According to WSJ, lawyers looking to cash in on the Gulf oil spill disaster have some bad news - BP's $20 billion claims fund may be cutting them out. Interesting - perhaps this is one of the reasons BP agreed to set up the fund?

As much as I am in favor of BP repaying those harmed by this tragedy, I am completely against lawyers/sharks trying to make a windfall from other people's misfortune. Serves them right, I say.
