CONCORD, N.H. —

Testimony has ended in the longest trial in New Hampshire's history, and the jurors who've been together since Jan. 14 bolted not for the doors but for their cameras.

They wanted to mark the occasion with a group photograph.

The jurors will begin deliberating next week over whether Exxon Mobil Corp. should pay the state of New Hampshire hundreds of millions of dollars to monitor and treat private wells and public drinking supplies contaminated by the gasoline additive MTBE.

Clearly with advance permission from Superior Court Judge Peter Fauver, they returned to their usual seats in the jury box after handing cameras and iPads to lawyers from both sides who reveled in the role of paparazzi.

Final arguments in the case are scheduled for next week.
