Chevron Shakedown Scammer Would Like To Be Released From House Arrest-Hot Air

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

The last time we checked in on Steve Donziger, the former lawyer behind the failed Chevron Shakedown, things weren’t going too well for him.

On Thursday morning, it brought together 30 Nobel laureates from around the world in an open letter that lauds Steven Donziger as a hero, and casualty, of sprawling litigation with the oil giant Chevron.
