Exxon Mobil NH Pollution Case

Exxon Mobil NH Pollution Case

Exxon Mobil must pay more than $230m in damages for polluting groundwater in NH.  They use a chemical in gasoline known as MTBE.  It is supposed to help reduce the smog produced by gas engines.

Do you believe this could be a catch 22?  If they wouldn’t have used MTBE, maybe they would be sued for product liability (as opposed to just the additive being the defective product).  However, with the additive being found as a pollutant in the groundwater they are liable for monetary damage to the state.

Thoughts?

Welcome, new students!

In just a few short days you will begin on an amazing educational journey.  In just a couple of short years you will be in an amazing career as a legal professional.  We at Vatterott are dedicated to your success as a student and a professional.

We understand the delicate balance of education and family life.  We understand that some of you will continue to work during your college experience.  Vatterott OKC is a beautiful and amazing facility that is designed to assist you to become the best person possible during your experience and thereafter.

Here are just a few things you should know ahead of time:

  • Your syllabus is your friend.  While it is mostly a loose guide telling you what will be covered during the term, the assignments are listed in it.  It has your weekly reading assignments and your written assignments.
  • eCampus is your friend.  I use it to keep up with grades, disseminate information, and share helpful websites.  Please do give me a little time to get everything assembled for you.
  • Please come to class prepared.  We will develop a list of classroom expectations together.  Preparation means you have finished your reading, you have something to take notes on (and to do pop quizzes that WILL be graded), ink pen, and being attentive.  Please do NOT turn in assignments written on spiral bound notebook paper.  If you write your assignments because you do not have access to a computer, please use clean tear or loose leaf paper.
  • I am on campus four days per week.  Two of those days I will be on campus until at least one in the afternoon.  On day one, I will provide you with my email and cell phone.
  • Speaking of email, please check it on a regular basis.  I will use your personal email instead of your student email.
  • If you are struggling in ANY of your coursework, please come to me.  I can’t help you if you don’t tell me you’re having a problem.  I am also your student adviser.
  • Be on time.

I look forward to week one (and the following nine weeks).  I assure you that I will respect your time and your investment in to your future.  I will help you all that I can, but I can’t do it for you.
