Montgomery. AL – Officials with the Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail have chosen three sites that will serve as education centers. A five million dollar interpretive station will be established next to Tent City in Lowndes County's White Hall community. Two other stations will be set up at the old People's Bank building in Selma and the City of Saint Jude in west Montgomery. The Trail will eventually retrace the path between Selma and Montgomery that voting rights marchers took in 1965.
Montgomery, AL – A Montgomery judge has cut the record 11-point-9 (b) billion dollar verdict against Exxon Mobil to 3-point-6 billion dollars.
The state government won the verdict in a natural gas royalty dispute with the oil company. Circuit Judge Tracy McCooey says Exxon Mobil intentionally and deliberately committed fraud against the state, but the verdict must be cut to bring it in line with U-S Supreme Court guidelines.
