Kaplan's wide-ranging injunction blocking enforcement of the judgment. James Tyrrell...appearing for the...Ecuadorans who won the judgment against Chevron in Ecuador...implored a three-judge motions panel to lift that portion of the judge's...preliminary injunction that he said prevents the Ecuadorans from funding and planning enforcement actions in courts around the world...Chevron lawyer Randy Mastro...said the expedited trial is needed because the real strategy of the Ecuadoran plaintiffs...is to "extort" a settlement won by fraud from the oil giant by filing multiple enforcement actions and attaching Chevron assets around the world.
