The suit was filed in Federal Court in Little Rock Friday afternoon.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - Today marks one week since the Mayflower oil spill, and now the first lawsuit has been filed against pipeline owner ExxonMobil.

The 16-page suit filed by two women who are neighbors on Ledrick Circle was filed this afternoon in Federal Court in Little Rock.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of themselves and "all others similarly situated to obtain monetary relief."

The suit lists two damage amounts, one for individual damages "in excess of $75,000" and the other "in aggregate" in excess of $5-million.

The case has been assigned to District Judge Brian Miller and Magistrate Jerome Kearney.

Two Little Rock law firms are named as representatives for the plaintiffs.

The lawsuit states that people who own property within a three-thousand-feet radius of the pipeline were impacted by the spill.
