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.

Under Pressure: How Steven Donziger uses pressure, intimidation and humiliation to silence his critics

In outtakes from the movie Crude, Steven Donziger, the U.S. lawyer behind the lawsuit against Chevron in Ecuador, was caught on tape saying: “The only language, I believe this judge is gonna understand is one of pressure, intimidation and humiliation.” It is evident that Donziger and his team have extended these tactics to include anyone who dissents or seeks to reveal the truth about his fraudulent, extortion scheme against Chevron.

Smear, Inc: After Years of Smearing Chevron, Donziger and Team Take Aim at Judges and Journalists

For over two decades Steven Donziger and co-conspirators have operated a smear campaign against Chevron – and anyone who would not do their bidding – in an attempt to pressure the company into a settlement. Despite being found to have committed bribery, extortion, obstruction of justice and witness tampering in March, in what U.S. Federal District Court Judge Lewis Kaplan called “egregious fraud” against Chevron, Mr. Donziger and his allies have expanded their smear campaign to include judges and journalists.

Ecuador Pays Celebs Big Bucks to Endorse Their Fraudulent Cause

Ecuador has been eager to improve its image lately. From international condemnation for cracking down on a free press to criticisms over human rights and rule of law, the country could use a good PR firm. Rather than addressing those pressing issues, however, Ecuador hired Brooklyn-based MCSquared for $6.4 million to stage anti-Chevron stunts, including paying celebrities to endorse their fraudulent campaign against the company.

Doubling Down on Science Fiction

Those behind the fraudulent lawsuit against Chevron in Ecuador continue to post false claims and shrill personal attacks against all who disagree with them.

In their latest attempt to rewrite history, lead plaintiffs’ attorney Steven Donziger and his associates are trying to claim they have legitimate science on their side, despite a March 4, 2014 federal court ruling, which found they violated the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) act by committing fraud, bribery, extortion and other illegalities in procuring a judgment against Chevron in Ecuador.
