Good Ecuador News for Chevron as Frivolous Patton Boggs Lawsuit Rejected for the Fourth Time
Today, The D.C. Circuit unanimously affirmed the district court’s dismissal of Patton Boggs’s claim against Chevron and Gibson Dunn for tortuous interference with Patton Boggs’s alleged contract with the Ecuadorian plaintiffs. It also affirmed the district court’s decision not to issue a declaratory judgment that Patton Boggs had no conflict of interest in representing the Ecuadorian plaintiffs in any court in the country.
Chevron is pleased with the decision unanimously upholding the lower court’s dismissal of Patton Boggs’ meritless claims. This is now the fourth time that a court has rejected Patton Boggs’ unfounded contentions. This frivolous suit was filed solely as an attempt to divert attention from the mountain of evidence demonstrating the fraudulent nature of the Ecuador case Patton Boggs has decided to support.
