ExxonMobil Fights For 20 Years, Wins Big at Supreme Court

The US Supreme Court hands ExxonMobil a $2 billion victory; the losers are individuals like fishing boat owners and class-action plaintiffs trying to recover income from the company's infamous oil tanker spill off Alaska in 1989.

Scientists have found that the after-effects have lingered longer than once thought.

The company's website delivers this with a straight face on its website:

"We are committed to meeting the world's growing demand for energy in an economically, environmentally and socially responsible manner."
