SFGate.com – Kohn, Swift & Graf, Money Givers To Steven Donziger, Pulled Into Chevron Ecuador Case
Date: Aug 8, 2011
This blogger writes about Judge Francis’ order for Steven Donziger associates and co-counsel to produce documents under a discovery request related to Chevron’s RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) claim:
Chevron has sued both Steven Donziger and the Lago Agrio plaintiffs in the New York Southern District for racketeering for allegedly skirting the Ecuadoran judicial process to win the $18 billion judgment and to extort a final settlement from the American oil giant. This is a major step in proving that Donziger’s whole case was a sham.
