Valdez lawyer disputes Exxon's numbers

Earlier this week, Exxon turned in its final brief to the high court in the Exxon Valdez case. The document focused on three main areas: maritime precedent, the clean water act and finally, an argument that Exxon has already forked over plenty. Exxon attorneys write in the brief, “The $3.4 billion Exxon has already paid is enough to deter anyone from doing anything.” But one local has done the numbers and says Exxon has paid nowhere near that sum.
