Stevens, Murkowski and Young submit Exxon Valdez amicus brief

Senator Ted Stevens today laid out the groundwork for the amicus brief that was filed in support of the Exxon Valdez oil spill plaintiff’s punitive damage award case. The case is before the U.S. Supreme Court and the amicus was filed last week on behalf of the Alaska Congressional delegation of Senator Stevens, Senator Murkowski and Congressman Don Young. The $2.5 billion Exxon Valdez oil spill punitive damage litigation case is scheduled to be heard by the Supreme Court next month.
