ABA Journal Article on Exxon Valdez Case: "At Sea Over Punitives: Justices Sail into Murky Waters over Damages from Infamous Disaster"

The February 2008 edition of the ABA Journal has this article on the Exxon Valdez case pending before the U.S. Supreme Court. The article focuses on the maritime law aspects of the case, but quotes Robin Conrad of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for the proposition that the case presents an issue of fairness that transcends maritime law: "While the Due Process Clause is not an issue before the court per se, the question of fundamental fairness is front and center."
