CONCORD -

Jurors in the longest state trial in New Hampshire's history will return to the courtroom after a nearly two-week hiatus to hear closing arguments in the state's groundwater contamination case against Exxon Mobil Corp.

Lawyers for the state want jurors to hold Exxon Mobil liable to the tune of $240 million to monitor and clean up wells and public water systems contaminated by the gasoline additive MTBE.

Lawyers for Exxon Mobil counter that MTBE was used to comply with federal Clean Air Act requirements to reduce smog. They also blame any lingering contamination on third parties not named in the state's decade-old lawsuit.

Each side will get three hours to make its case Monday.

Jurors won't begin their deliberations until Tuesday - after the judge instructs them on the law.
