Chevron foe Steven Donziger on Thursday urged a New York federal judge to end his home confinement while he awaits criminal contempt prosecution, saying his house arrest is approaching 500 days and there’s apparently never been a federal misdemeanor defendant without a criminal record held to home confinement with electronic monitoring.

In a letter to U.S. District Judge Loretta A. Preska, Donziger’s attorney Ronald L. Kuby said that “in the available history of the federal judiciary” there is no evidence of home confinement with electronic monitoring having been ordered for a defendant in Donziger’s shoes.

“It is well past time that this court finally live up to its own incantation, but it is not too late to do so,” Kuby said.
