Netright Daily – Chevron Challenges Environmental Claims in RICO Suit that Highlights Possible Collusion
This article discusses the Chevron Ecuador case, going through Chevron’s RICO suit and the Cabrera report:
Instead of playing defense against green pressure groups that peddle dubious allegations, private companies should follow the lead of Chevron Corp., which has pushed back aggressively against the plaintiffs’ attorneys in case that involves pollution allegations in Ecuador. Chevron has presented evidence that shows a court appointed expert may have been operating in collusion with the litigants. Moreover, the company claims a concerted effort has been made to manufacture environmental claims, deceive public officials and to inflate liability costs.
