Center for Individual Freedom – Chevron/Ecuador Judge Smacks Down Lawyers

Date: May 16, 2011

In the second part of his discussion of the Chevron Ecuador lawsuit, this blogger writes about the trial’s legal developments in the United States:

This is not, repeat not, just a question of one company fighting off a lawsuit. This is a question of American companies being badly abused by a foreign court system, at the urging of American lawyers about whom several judges have raised the specter that they have acted fraudulently. This should be a matter where the U.S. government, through the White House and State Department, should weigh in diplomatically to protect American interests. That they have not done so should be a mark of shame for the Obama administration.
