New Jersey Allows Retroactive Lawsuit in Spill Case

Chalk one up for the rabid environmentalists who will subvert everything, even the rule of law, to get their way.

Wrong-sighted New Jersey Superior Court Judge Ross Anzaldi ruled that Exxon Mobil can be sued under the state’s Spill Compensation and Control Act for breaking that law prior to its being enacted.

If we’re just going to hold companies accountable for actions that they committed before laws were even enacted, why bother enacting the laws? Why not just take them to court and strip them of their ability to conduct commerce? It’s only jobs and money right?

Actually, I should quit this post now. I don’t want to reinforce any crazy ideas that people like Judge Anzaldi already possess.
