The attorney for a group of W.R. Berkley Corp. companies that have filed suit against West Fertilizer Co. calls the retailer's lack of adequate insurance "irresponsible." 

Paul A. Grinke of McCathern in Dallas adds he predicts his clients and others involved in lawsuits against the West, Texas facility that exploded last month will "be left holding the bag."
