Big Oil does everything big: Lawsuits Mounting Over Exxon Gas Leak

An additional 50 claims seeking $1 billion in punitive damages will be filed today against Exxon Mobil. The lawsuits accuse the company of allowing gas from an underground fuel line to leak into the ground water near Jacksonville. The lawsuit also alleges Exxon and a station operator failed to report the leak for 37 days and exaggerated the success of their cleanup efforts. Timothy B.
