Exxon sued over tar sands pipeline spill

The US Justice Department filed a joint lawsuit with Arkansas against oil producer Exxon Mobil over the pipeline spill in March of thousands of barrels of heavy Canadian tar sands oil in a suburban neighborhood. 

The 95,000 barrels per day Pegasus line has been shut since spilling the oil in Mayflower, Arkansas, where cleanup operations continue and residents are still forced to evacuate their homes. [Reuters]
