A Circuit Court judge has affirmed the decision of a Baltimore County jury to award $150 million to neighbors of a Jacksonville service station to compensate for damages arising from a leaking underground pipe. But the judge, Maurice W. Baldwin Jr., who presided over the five-month trial in the residents’ lawsuit against the station’s owner, ExxonMobil Corp., reduced the damages by between $3 million and $4 million. The Court took into account the money received by four families who were able to sell their properties. Also, the court adhered to a cap set by state law for this type of compensatory damages.
