A state judge on Monday ruled that environmental groups and a state senator could not intervene in New Jersey's tentative $225 million settlement with ExxonMobil Corp. in a controversial pollution case. The decision delivered a blow to groups such as the New Jersey Sierra Club that say the settlement does not recoup what they believe Exxon owes the state after contaminating 1,500 acres of land, groundwater, and surface water for decades at the company's sites in North Jersey. The settlement also covers the state's claims with Exxon at a number of gas stations and 16 other facilities, including one in Paulsboro.
