Exxon a real let down

Well if you all have not herd or may not know about, the Supreme court has made there decision on the final bout over the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Going from a 2.5 billion to only a little over $500 million.
Click here for more on this.
Now not being one of the plaintiffs I still fell this is a low blow to Alaska’s fisherman. These people lost out on millions and millions of dollars in profits from fishing to tours.
It’s really hard to understand why Exxon would not just pay. Was not like it would have hurt there pocket books any. Not with these profits they just got $40.61 billion last year .
If this is how they view a way to say sorry and kick a few pennies of what is really owed, then this only shows the younger generations how “Big Companies” really work.


Chow for Now
