Alabama's Exxon Mobil Dispute Goes Back to Court
(2008-01-08)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The legal fight between Exxon Mobil and the state of Alabama over natural gas royalties isn't over.

In November, the Alabama Supreme Court threw out nearly all the $3.6 billion verdict that the state government won. But today, a judge will hear arguments on how much Exxon Mobil owes the state from what was left.

State attorneys say it's nearly $143 million in royalties and interest. Company attorneys put the figure about $20 million less than that.

Montgomery County Circuit Judge Tracy McCooey will hear the arguments and then decide.
