Last 4 suits from BP plant blast settled

Attorneys say they have settled the last remaining lawsuits filed after a deadly 2005 explosion at a BP PLC refinery near Houston.
More than 4,000 lawsuits were filed following the blast, which killed 15 people and injured more than 170, but attorneys for blast victims announced Friday that the last four cases were settled.
Another remaining case had been settled on Monday. All five cases were set for trial next month.
The terms of the settlements, as has been the case when other blast-related suits, were confidential.
