Steven Donziger, Lawyer Known for Multibillion-Dollar Environmental Battle With Chevron, Is Disbarred-

Steven Donziger speaks with reporters outside the federal courthouse on April 20, 2015.

Steven Donziger, the environmental lawyer known for his multibillion-dollar battle with Chevron over its Ecuadorian oil field in the Amazon, on Thursday was disbarred.
