Court backs Chevron in legal fight with Ecuador- Kallinish Energy


The District Court of The Hague has ruled in favor of Chevron on its long-running dispute with the Republic of Ecuador in connection with a 2011 judgment against Chevron for pollution claims that were obtained through corruption, Kallanish Energy reports.

The new ruling upholds a 2018 arbitral award issued by an international tribunal administered by the Permanent Court of Arbitration that ordered Ecuador to prevent enforcement of the Chevron judgment and rejected Ecuador’s attempt to have the decision annulled.

That tribunal found that a $9.5 billion Ecuadorian judgement against Chevron was procured through fraud and corruption by the plaintiffs’ legal team. That included bribing the presiding judge and ghostwriting the judgment.
