More funders of the Chevron Shakedown bail out – Hot Air

It’s time to check back in on the attempts by New York attorney Steven Donziger and his environmental activist friends to shake down energy giant Chevron for billions of dollars. Unfortunately for Steve, the news continues to be bad without exception. Having been exposed as a racketeer under the auspices of RICO, the various groups who had invested money in the litigation in exchange for a percentage of the expected shakedown money continue to bail out.

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>>

The Global Lawyer: Chevron, Donziger and Human Rights 101 – Litigation Daily

Here, in a nutshell, are the real human rights lessons of Chevron in Ecuador, drawn from the jurists’ brief: “Advocates for human rights do not advance human rights by violating them.” Human rights “cannot be promoted through corrupt means.” And “corrupt means are apt to subvert even noble ends.” The nutshell in a nutshell is that ends don’t justify means. There’s really not much left to be said, other than citing the pertinent conventions to promote human rights and combat corruption. Read more>>

Harvard welcomes noted racketeer Steven Donziger to discuss Chevron Shakedown – Hot Air

Harvard University may be sending a none too subtle message regarding their feelings about capitalism and successful businesses in America. They are hosting a panel discussion event this weekend with the innocent sounding name, Insider perspectives and implications for the future of transnational corporate liability. On the surface that probably sounds about as interesting as watching paint dry, but one of the distinguished speakers on the panel is none other than Chevron Shakedown lawyer Steven Donziger, famous for being instrumental in trying to shake down the energy giant for billions of dollars. This is an effort which has since gone totally off the rails and seen the attorney hauled into court and found complicit in a vast conspiracy to defraud the company. What’s even more odd is that even though this campaign has been completely discredited, this is the second time Harvard has hosted him. Read more>>
