Federal judge refuses to dismiss lawsuit against ExxonMobil over pipeline break

Posted By on Mon, Jun 9, 2014 at 2:07 PM

Federal Judge Kristine Baker today refused a request to dismiss the federal-state lawsuit filed last year against the ExxonMobil Pipeline Company over the pipeline break that spilled heavy crude in the Mayflower area.

The pipeline company argued that the lawsuit failed to state a claim.

The judge said the parties had made sufficient factual allegations to pursue claims for violations of several federal and state environmental laws.
