Fortune – Pursuit of former Texaco lawyer described in Chevron trial

Date: Oct 22, 2013

Chevron’s (CVX) first witness at its civil racketeering trial against Steven Donziger, which started last Tuesday, was Ricardo Reis Veiga.

Veiga provided basic background for the case, but Chevron also offered Veiga’s personal story as a dramatic and, it hopes Judge Kaplan will find, appalling example of the lengths to which Donziger went to “extort” money from Chevron — a key building block, or “predicate act,” in its RICO accusations.
