Pre-trial hearing set for ex-BP exec
NEW ORLEANS - Attorneys for one of the men facing criminal charges in connection with the 2010 Gulf oil spill are hashing out a variety of issues ahead of a March trial.

A Wednesday hearing deals with a variety of issues including whether certain evidence about the flow rate from BP's ill-fated Macondo well should be excluded from trial; and whether part of the indictment should be dismissed.
