Ecuadorian Victims' Struggle for Justice Against Chevron

On October 15, a landmark trial opened in a federal court in New York City: Chevron Corp v. Steven Donziger, one of the world's largest oil companies against the attorneys…who represent the 30,000 "Lago Agrio Plaintiffs". The case is the latest in a long and often tragic saga of the Ecuadorian victims struggle for justice…The Ecuadorian communities are fighting for justice for the human rights violations and environmental crimes…In February 2011, Judge Nicolas Zambrano issued a final verdict, ordering Chevron to pay $18.5 billion to the Ecuadorian plaintiffs…Now Chevron has accused the attorney of fraud and racketeering...Chevron brought three collateral actions against the Ecuador judgment in a New York federal court…Don't let this legal imbroglio eclipse the issues which are really at the heart of this case: human rights, justice and environmental protection.[Also refers to BP, Exxon, Texaco (part of Chevron)]
