Forbes – Chevron Says Ecuador Pollution Records Fabricated
Date: Apr 6, 2010
Chevron has never made a pretense of playing nice with the U.S. lawyers suing it over pollution left over from when its Texaco unit was drilling for oil in the jungles of Ecuador. Earlier this year it got an Ecuadorian judge tossed from the case after releasing incriminating videotapes in which a pair of sketchy remediation contractors discussed what may or may not be post-trial financial arrangements with the judge. Today it lobbed another grenade in the direction of the plaintiffs, releasing a deposition in which an expert says he never signed documents that were filed with the court under his name.
