For at least the fourth time, lawyer Steven Donziger’s high-profile criminal contempt-of-court trial has been postponed, with the presiding judge writing that she was doing so “reluctantly” and noting that Donziger had objected to the trial being conducted remotely because of the coronavirus pandemic.
