Chevron Ecuador Development – American Lawyer – The Tapes the Plaintiffs Don’t Want You to See
Excerpts from the documentary “Crude” are now available online. Here’s an excerpt from an article that has just posted:

If Donziger would say something so provocative for the final cut, reasoned Chevron’s lawyers at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, then just imagine how outrageous he must look in the extra footage.
Well, the public no longer needs to use its imagination.
