Chevron Wants Donziger Jailed In Fight Over $9.5B Fine – Law360

Chevron Corp. told a New York federal court on Monday that attorney Steven Donziger, who helped procure a fraudulent $9.5 billion judgment in Ecuador over pollution in the Amazon, should be jailed if he continues refusing to transfer his interest in the proceeds of that judgment to Chevron. U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan had reiterated last month that Donziger had to transfer to Chevron his interest in a Gibraltar-based company called Amazonia Recovery Ltd., which had been formed to collect and distribute any proceeds from the $9.5 billion Ecuadorian judgment. The order followed up on a directive the judge had made in an opinion issued in the case more than four years ago, in which he concluded that the $9.5 billion ruling had been “ghostwritten” by Donziger and other members of the legal team who represented indigenous Ecuadorians in a lawsuit against Chevron over extensive environmental damage in the Amazon decades ago. The key findings of that decision were largely echoed in a ruling issued by an international tribunal in The Hague late last month. Read more>>
