More coverage of Judge Kennedy’s decision regarding Patton Boggs, one of the law firms purporting to represent the Lago Agrio plaintiffs:
A federal judge in Washington today refused to allow the law firm Patton Boggs to tack on additional allegations in a suit rooted in human rights litigation in Ecuador against the oil giant Chevron.
Last year, Patton Boggs asked Judge Henry Kennedy Jr. of Washington federal district court to declare that the firm is in the ethical clear to advocate for Ecuadorian plaintiffs in the human rights matter against Chevron.
