Reuters – Chevron appeals to top Ecuador court in pollution case

Date: Dec 24, 2013

U.S. energy company Chevron Corp appealed on Monday to Ecuador’s highest court, asking it to cancel a $9.5 billion fine for polluting the Amazon rainforest in a long-running case.

Last month Ecuador’s National Court of Justice upheld a 2011 verdict by a lower court that Chevron was responsible for pollution in the area caused by U.S. oil firm Texaco, whose assets were bought by Chevron in 2001.
