Donziger Sued By Lawyer Who Withdrew From Criminal Case

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

A former lawyer of Steven Donziger has sued the Chevron foe over what appear to be allegations of unpaid legal bills, while Donziger has separately moved to dismiss the criminal case in which the lawyer, Andrew Frisch, represented him.

Frisch filed a summons Wednesday in New York state court notifying Donziger he was initiating a case for breach of contract for damages “believed to be in excess of $250,000, plus consequential damages of at least $100,000.”

No complaint is yet available, but the summons indicates the suit is over “professional services which defendant induced and received without complaint … provided by plaintiffs.” The plaintiffs listed are Frisch and his eponymous law office.
