LITTLE ROCK, AR - A new judge will be appointed to oversee the U.S. and State of Arkansas lawsuit against ExxonMobil.
In a court filing on Tuesday, Judge James Moody, Jr. recused himself from the case, citing a "previous relationship with counsel or a party."
There's no word yet on who the Clerk of Court will appoint to replace Judge Moody.
