The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington D.C. this week rejected Ecuador’s challenge to an arbitral award, leaving the Republic in debt to Chevron to the tune of $106 million for commercial claims dating back to the 1990s.

Steven Donziger and his few remaining supporters have been trumpeting a computer forensics report that they claim is a “game changer” in their decades-long attempt to extort billions of dollars from Chevron and to distract from the U.S. federal court’s ruling against them.

Another Key Funder of Fraudulent Ecuador Litigation Against Chevron Withdraws Support

Chevron has reached a settlement agreement with Woodsford Litigation Funding Limited, a U.K.-based litigation funder that provided $2.5 million in funding to the fraudulent lawsuit against Chevron in Ecuador. Chevron brought conspiracy claims against Woodsford in Gibraltar for the company’s role in funding and advancing the fraudulent lawsuit. In the settlement Woodsford has resolved those claims by withdrawing all financial support related to the Ecuador litigation and assigning all of its interest in the litigation to Chevron. Chevron, in turn, has agreed to release all of its claims against Woodsford and Woodsford’s Gibraltar-based funding entity, Temeraire Limited. Read more>>

Forensic Evidence Confirms Ecuadorian Judge Did Not Write Judgment Against Chevron

Steven Donziger and his few remaining followers are touting a “leaked” report related to the computers used by former Ecuadorian judge Nicolas Zambrano when he presided over the trial against Chevron in Ecuador. They claim the report, which was commissioned by the Republic of Ecuador, is some sort of smoking gun that proves Judge Zambrano was the true author of the judgment against Chevron. As usual, their claims are flat out wrong.

Chevron Ecuador RICO Decision: One Year Later

One year after a U.S. District Court judge ruled that Steven Donziger and his team had committed “egregious fraud” against Chevron in Ecuador, the case built on corruption and lies continues to unravel. One year ago today – March 4, 2014 – the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York issued a 500-page ruling concluding that the $9.5 billion Ecuadorian judgment against Chevron was the product of fraud and racketeering. Following the seven-week RICO trial, Judge Lewis Kaplan also found that Ecuador’s judgment was unenforceable in the U.S. and held Donziger liable for RICO violations.
