Second Circuit Refuses to Block Enforcement of Ecuador Judgment
The Second Circuit issued an opinion yesterday reversing the district court and refusing to block enforcement of a judgment against Chevron in Ecuador. Coverage at Civil Procedure & Federal Courts Blog and Thompson Reuters News & Insight.
If you haven't seen it, I recommend reading the New Yorker coverage of the litigation. Talk about scorched earth! Its a fantastic teaching tool for civil procedure and complex litigation and a great read.
You can find Patrick Radden Keefe's article about the plaintiffs' lead lawyer, Steve Donziger, here. More on the litigation on Keefe's blog here.
