Various media outlets are reporting that the Lago Agrio plaintiffs’ lawyers have initiated recognition and enforcement actions of their fraudulent judgment in Argentina. Rather than attempt to enforce in the United States- where Chevron Corporation resides- the plaintiffs’ lawyers will again attempt to launder their illegitimate judgment through a foreign court. If they believed in the integrity of their judgment, they would be seeking enforcement in the United States.

Chevron does not believe that the Ecuador judgment is enforceable in any court that observes the rule of law. The company will continue to pursue relief against Ecuador in pending arbitration and against the plaintiffs’ representatives in a pending RICO action in New York.
