New York Law Journal – Kaplan Declines to Recuse From Chevron Case
More coverage of the New York judge who issued a preliminary injunction against the collection of any judgment against Chevron in Ecuador:
In March Judge Kaplan, saying the judgment may have been secured by a fraud in Ecuador orchestrated in part by lead Lago Agrio plaintiffs’ lawyer Steven Donziger, issued a preliminary injunction against attempts to collect on the $18 billion judgment anywhere in the world.
Judge Kaplan last year ordered filmmaker Joseph Berlinger to turn over outtakes from “Crude,” a documentary film on the Lago Agrio litigation solicited by Mr. Donziger. He later enforced subpoenas against Mr. Donziger, including one to depose the controversial attorney.
