Steven Donziger, the disgraced American attorney – who helped secure a fraudulent $9.5 billion judgment against Chevron in Ecuador by bribing the Ecuadorean trial judge and ghost-writing his opinion – made a series of appeals to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals which mostly ruled against him this past week.

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals judgements against Steven Donziger are a knife-in-the-heart to his attempts to profit from his fraud against Chevron in the Lago Agrio, Ecuador, lawsuit.

The U.S. Court of Appeals handed down a strongly worded majority opinion in the civil court legal fight between Steven Donziger and oil company Chevron, upholding nearly all of a trial judge’s six civil contempt-of-court findings against Donziger but throwing out one of them because the judge had “introduced considerable ambiguity” into an injunction order, according to a Law.com report.
