Lago Agrio plaintiffs’ law firm Patton Boggs loses another U.S court decision
Patton Boggs, one of the law firms purporting to represent the Lago Agrio plaintiffs, and a named co-conspirator in Chevron’s RICO case, has lost another court decision. The firm claimed that Chevron and its law firm, Gibson Dunn, as a result of their success in U.S. courts, have interfered with Patton Boggs’s relationship with its alleged clients.
Judge Henry H. Kennedy, Jr. of the District Court in the District of Columbia dismissed a previous Patton Boggs complaint filed against Chevron, stating “Patton Boggs misunderstands the law.” On Friday, Judge Kennedy denied their motion to reconsider the dismissal of its complaint. He writes that “Patton Boggs’s argument is a day late and a dollar short.”
