Sutliff & Stout, PLLC Obtains $1.94M Verdict Against Exxon Mobil Corporation
Houston & Austin Personal Injury Lawyers

HOUSTON, TX (RPRN) 04/30/13 — Houston personal injury law firm Sutliff & Stout, PLLC obtained a jury verdict of $1,937,889.30 against Exxon Mobil (NYSE: XOM) after a week-long trial in Harris County Probate Court. The case stemmed from the death of a 59-year-old man after an altercation occurred inside an Exxon Mobil owned gas station located at 5702 Westheimer Road. Exxon Mobil management was alerted to the possibility of violence, yet it failed to address the situation. Exxon Mobil denied liability and claimed that it had no responsibility to address known threats of violence and that the altercation was a “personal” issue and not a “personnel” issue. The jury rejected Exxon Mobil’s argument.

When asked to comment on the jury’s verdict, Sutliff & Stout, PLLC partner Graham E. Sutliff said, “Hopefully this will send a message to Exxon Mobil and others that you can not ignore threats of violence. Every company has an obligation to take reasonable steps to protect their customers and ignoring known threats is not reasonable. Had Exxon Mobil simply done something, our client would still be with us today.”
