"Court of Special Appeals asked to vacate opinion on Exxon Mobil damages"

Shapiro Sher partner Paul Mark Sandler is quoted in The Maryland Daily Record regarding his opinion about whether the Court of Special Appeals should vacate its own decision in a case involving a $150 million damage award against Exxon Mobil.

Plaintiffs' lawyers in the Exxon Mobil case filed a motion for reconsideration, asserting that the appellate panel had failed to reach a seven-judge majority on several issues as required by state law for cases heard by the entire court.
