Chevron lawyers can’t make up their mind. First they claim Ecuadorian plaintiffs don’t exist at all, then they say maybe they do exist but are irrelevant to the pollution lawsuit.
Just look at the Lou Dematteis’ pictures and see how very real those people and the contamination that is killing them are.
In its latest post Chevron Pit blogs about another dirty move by Chevron in its desperate fight to get out of paying the court-ordered $18 billion fee for the pollution in Ecuador: SPYING on the two lead attorneys representing Ecuadorians. They are being followed and recorded by investigators hired by Chevron. Steven Donziger, the US based attorney, his wife and children can’t go anywhere without Chevron’s spies closely following them.

A smoking gun document and a taxpayer bailout are the topics of the latest Chevron Pit. Find out about how Chevron doctored a document to hide the massive contamination it caused at well sites in Ecuador. Meanwhile, now that the courts in US and Ecuador have ruled in the Ecuadorians’ favor, Chevron is angling to get a panel of corporate lawyers to direct the Government of Ecuador to pay for the damages. Sounds like a Kangaroo court to me.
Looks like Chevron operative Diego Borja and his wife are living large on the Chevron dole, per the latest blog on The Chevron Pit. Borja secretly taped a judge in a failed effort to throw the Ecuador case. Joining him was convicted drug felon, Wayne Hansen, who also appears to be on the Chevron dole, living like a king in Peru. Wonder what would happen if Chevron cut them off?
It seems like Chevron needs to hire more lawyers to win in court because the 500 were not good enough to win the case against poor indigenous in Ecuador. According to The Chevron Pit, Chevron has lost three court battles in a row! Read about it here.
