The UK-based Independent referenced Professor Jeffrey L. Fisher in a story about the Exxon Valdez case being revisited by the Supreme Court:

At the heart of the lawsuit is the disputed accusation that Exxon ignored warnings that Mr Hazelwood was a drunk. Jeffrey L Fisher, a professor of law at Stanford University who is arguing the case for the victims, has sent the court a video of Exxon executives acknowledging fault as well as a tape of the distress call made by a clearly drunk Mr Hazelwood saying his ship was aground.
