Mass Tort Defense – Chevron Suit Proceeds: Ecuador Plaintiffs’ Judicial Estoppel Motion Rejected
More on the decision in the Chevron case regarding Ecuador’s politicized and corrupt judicial system. A federal judge rules that Chevron can challenge the fairness of that country’s courts:

It was Chevron’s contention that it did not, as a result of events that occurred in and after 2004, whatever may have been the case previously. That is not an inconsistent position from what Texaco had allegedly argued.
