U.S. Supreme Court Expands Oral Argument Time in Exxon Valdez Punitive Damages Case

The Supreme Court issued an order today expanding the time allowed for oral argument in the Exxon Valdez case. Instead of the usual 30 minutes per side, the court has alloted 45 minutes per side for oral argument. The Court rejected the state of Alaska's request to participate in oral argument.
