Exxon faces environmental contamination lawsuit in Maryland

March 23, 2009 - Ninety-one families who sued Exxon Mobile for environmental contamination have been awarded $150 million in their lawsuit. The lawsuit followed a gasoline leak that contaminated wells and forced people to buy bottled water.

The leak occurred in 2006, when an underground storage tank leaked approximately 26,000 gallons of gasoline. The leak went on for 37 days before it was discovered. Families were awarded approximately $1 million each for emotional distress plus the value of their homes and medical monitoring.

I live on a 38,000 acre south texas ranch with ExxonMobil. they are such slobs. I have my own website and blog with video and film of their daily operations. Please check it out -- it's just so unbelievable what they get away with. They have been dumping on this place since 1935!
I live here. I want to offer an inside view of the real ExxonMobil in today's world. Their commercials are such BS!
