A Federal judge has upheld the preliminary injunction issued earlier this year that prohibits the plaintiffs in the Chevron Ecuador case from enforcing the Lago Agrio judgment:
NEW YORK — A federal judge has denied a motion to stay a preliminary injunction filed last week by lawyers representing the Ecuadorian plaintiffs in their case against oil giant Chevron.
U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan granted Chevron’s motion for a preliminary injunction on March 7. The order aims to prevent the plaintiffs and their counsel from taking any steps to enforce the $9.5 billion legal judgment against the company issued Feb. 14.
