Donziger’s Bid To Delay Trial ‘Reluctantly’ Granted

The lawyer of Ecuadorean people affected by Texaco-Chevron --who have long sought compensation for pollution between the 1970s and early 1990s-- Steven Donziger, speaks during a press conference on March 19, 2014 in Quito. Earlier this month, a US judge upheld Chevron's allegations that an Ecuadoran court decision ordering it to pay $9.5 billion for oil pollution in the Amazon jungle was fraudulently obtained.

A New York federal judge has “reluctantly” granted Chevron foe Steven Donziger’s bid to postpone his bench trial from mid-January to May, while also denying Donziger’s attempt to trim the suit.

On Sunday, U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska allowed the suit to be postponed once more, about 600 days after Donziger’s home confinement began.

Sunday’s postponement arrives after Donziger’s objections to a remote trial, which special prosecutor Rita Glavin consented to last week.
