Chevron Says Ecuadorian Atty Can’t Quash Subpoenas- Law360

Steven Donziger speaks with reporters outside the federal courthouse on April 20, 2015.

Chevron has urged a New York federal court to deny an Ecuadorian lawyer’s bid to quash subpoenas seeking information on whether attorney Steven Donziger is profiting from a $9.5 billion judgment issued against the company in Ecuador.

The energy giant said Friday that Patricio Salazar’s claims did not hold up. The attorney, who is not a party to the litigation, argued on Oct. 2 he could not be subpoenaed in the U.S. because he is based in Ecuador and that much of the requested documents would be covered by attorney-client privilege. 

Chevron claimed Salazar — who represents El Frente de Defensa de la Amazonia, the beneficiary of the Ecuadorian judgment, which U.S. District Judge Lewis  A. Kaplan later deemed fraudulent — is closely connected to Donziger and was “integral” to his scheme to “violate this court’s [Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act] injunction by profiting from funds raised through the selling of shares of the Ecuadorian judgment.”
