Davis & Whitlock, in conjunction with the Mickel & Chapman law firm out of Conway, Arkansas, has obtained an settlement which will conclude litigation filed against the ExxonMobil Pipeline Company on behalf of residents of Mayflower, Arkansas arising out of the March 29, 2013, rupture of ExxonMobil’s Pegasus Pipeline, which captured national attention. On Good Friday, 2013, the Pegasus Pipeline ruptured in a residential subdivision in Mayflower, causing 5,000 barrels of heavy Canadian Tar Sands crude oil to flow into residents’ yards, under their homes, through the town of Mayflower, and into Lake Conway. The rupture led to the evacuation and permanent displacement of many residents, the presence of toxic petroleum fumes in and around Mayflower for many weeks, and a year long clean-up which transformed much of Mayflower into an industrial work zone. Davis & Whitlock is pleased to announce that the matter was concluded on terms that were satisfactory to the Plaintiffs.
