Law 360 – Chamber Asks 2nd Circ. To Block $18B Chevron Verdict
Coverage of the filings made in support of the injunction blocking enforcement of the Chevron Ecuador verdict. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is one of the parties that filed an amicus brief in support of Chevron:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other organizations on Thursday urged the Second Circuit to uphold an injunction barring Ecuadorean plaintiffs from enforcing an $18 billion pollution award against Chevron Corp. in U.S. courts.
