GALVESTON — A state district court judge ruled Monday that John Browne, BP’s highest-ranking executive, must give a sworn deposition in a lawsuit alleging the company’s “gross negligence” caused last year’s deadly refinery explosions in Texas City.

BP, which has fought the depositions of its senior executives in the lawsuit, said it likely would appeal the order.

Judge Susan Criss of the 212th Judicial District ordered Browne and BP global refining chief John Manzoni to give depositions in a lawsuit related to the March 23, 2005, blasts that killed 15 people and injured more than 170.
