Chevron Wins Nigerian ATCA Case

The LA Times reports that a federal jury found in favor of Chevron in the Alien Tort Claims Act case brought by Nigerian villagers.  The Wall Street Journal Law Blog and Am Law Daily both have more on the verdict.  As previously reported, the suit  had alleged that Chevron aided and abetted the deaths of two Nigerians who were protesting Chevron's oil production in Nigeria.
