Reuters – Chevron wants Ecuador judge off damages lawsuit

Date: Sep 17, 2010

Chevron asks Ecuador Judge Ordonez to recuse himself based on his failure to investigate evidence of fraud in the lawsuit:

Last month Chevron requested that Ordonez recuse himself based on the company’s view that the judge had not investigated evidence of collusion between the plaintiffs and Richard Cabrera, the court-appointed expert who came up with the $27 billion damages figure.

“The motion to recuse Judge Ordonez is based on his repeated violation of Chevron’s due process rights by, among other things, ignoring irrefutable proof of fraud committed by plaintiffs’ lawyers in the Lago Agrio litigation,” said Chevron spokesman James Craig.
