The Litigation Daily – Chevron v. Donziger: The Money Man
Date: Oct 17, 2013
Day Two of the Chevron v. Donziger trial centered on the testimony of Chevron Corporation witness Christopher Bogart, founder and CEO of the prominent U.S.–based litigation financier Burford Capital. Bogart, a onetime funder of the Ecuadorian environmental case that culminated in a $19 billion judgment against Chevron in 2011, formally shifted alliances in April. He now claims he was duped by the Ecuadorian plaintiffs and their U.S. lawyer, Steven Donziger, into investing in a fraudulent shakedown of the oil giant.
