Chevron Update – National Review

I am a big fan of Chevron, and not only because it’s an NR advertiser: In a world where corporations get weak-kneed and pay ransom when threatened by a liberal / leftist shakedown, the oil giant has taken the different road. As we have reported many times, a concocted and well-funded legal attack spanning the Western Hemisphere — accusing Chevron of not remediating old drilling sites in Ecuador, and causing cancer, pollution, and other alleged and bogus calamities — would have gone away with some major tribute bucks.

Despite the U.S. court finding that the $9.5 billion Ecuadorian judgment against Chevron is the product of fraud, bribery and extortion, Donziger and his team continue to repeat their distortions about the case hoping that their lies will become the truth.
