Supreme Court still not ready for Exxon 'Valdez' ruling

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on a number of cases today, but there’s still no decision regarding the 1989 Exxon Valdez Oil Spill in Prince William Sound. For months now, residents of spill-affected communities have eagerly awaited the court’s decision on whether to uphold billions of dollars of punitive damages that Exxon must pay. Now, a Sociology Professor says he has a study which shows that spill litigation may be responsible for unusually high psychological stress levels in one of the towns hit hardest by the spill.
