Chevron seeks dismissal of Ecuador lawsuit

Chevron Corp asked an Ecuador court on Monday to drop an environmental lawsuit the oil giant said had turned into a "judicial farce." In its petition to an Ecuador Superior Court, Chevron cited several examples of interference in the case by the executive branch of the government, judicial misconduct and misconduct by the plaintiffs lawyers, the company said in a statement…. Steven Donziger, one of the plaintiff's lawyers, classified Chevron's request for a dismissal as "a strategy that already has been tried and failed in multiple occasions.” [also refers to Petroecuador]
