Justice delayed is justice denied

Nineteen years ago Exxon Valdez struck a rock, ripped open her tanks and spilled a ship load of sticky crude oil into Prince William Sound.
Today, one of the various lawsuits resulting from this terible accident entered the Supreme Court. A maritime tragedy, unbelievable fish and bird kills created nineteen years of welfare for lawyers. And it isn't over, the Supreme Court will take its time, the lawyers will invent new things to litigate. If the lawyers can stretch it out for 19 years, they can probably keep it going, and the fees flowing, for another nineteen years.
This ain't justice.
