Judge Slams Donziger’s ‘Repackaged’ Recusal Request- Law360

Steven Donziger speaks with reporters outside the federal courthouse on April 20, 2015.

A New York federal judge on Wednesday denied Chevron Corp. foe Steven Donziger’s motion that she recuse herself from his criminal contempt case, saying it is just a “repackaged version” of a previously rejected attempt to disqualify her combined with a “grab bag” of meritless complaints.

U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska said she viewed Donziger’s request as a motion for reconsideration, but he did not meet the requirements to prevail in such a motion.

The judge cited the Second Circuit’s 1995 ruling in Shrader v. CSX Transp., Inc. , which found that a motion for reconsideration must point to facts or data overlooked by the court. Donziger “has not done that here,” the judge said. “He identifies no facts or law that the court ignored and simply elaborates on the same speculations the court rejected months ago.”
