This is a really big deal.

A thousand times worse than e-mailgate.

The governor overrode the attorney general to make this settlement. The New York Times article mentions that the settlement will come up for public comment in April before going to the judge for final approval. I’ll have to keep an eye out for that since I live in New Jersey. State senators have said they will file suit to block the settlement. I hope those layers of defense will scuttle the deal.

In the courtroom, New Jersey’s experts testified that Exxon was responsible for $8.9 billion in damages to the state’s natural resources, primarily through the destruction of creeks, wetlands and aquatic life. Exxon swung away at the state’s case during trial but never landed a punch, as I saw firsthand as one of the witnesses called by Exxon to testify. The presiding judge — an admired expert in environmental law who had been recalled from retirement for the trial — had been expected to issue his decision soon.

But sometime during the judge’s deliberations, the Christie administration asked him to defer his ruling. One would think that Mr. Christie would have kept his immediate political staff at a distance from these negotiations.

While he was chairman of the Republican Governors Association in 2014, the group received $500,000 from Exxon and more from company employees. While this was not Exxon’s first contribution to the group, this donation was made at a time when the New Jersey trial was pending.

250 million is a joke.
Can we subpoena his emails?

re: #3 blueraven

A super fund site land fill smells better than this overt display of cronyism. I hope this goes national and there is a federal investigation. And Christie is forever known as the crook he is.
