Chevron Statement on United States Second Circuit Court of Appeals Order

The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit today issued an order denying the Ecuadorian plaintiffs' attempt to recuse Judge Lewis Kaplan, vacating Judge Kaplan's preliminary injunction against enforcement of the Ecuadorian judgment against Chevron, and staying Chevron's claim for a declaratory judgment that the Ecuadorian judgment is unenforceable…The Second Circuit vacated the preliminary injunction after receiving…a written representation from the Ecuadorian plaintiffs' lawyers that they would not attempt to enforce the Ecuadorian judgment during the pendency of the first instance appeal in Ecuador -- a promise the Ecuadorian plaintiffs repeatedly refused to make to the trial court…Chevron's lawsuit against the Lago Agrio plaintiffs and their representatives for violations of the federal RICO statute, common law fraud, and other laws will continue.
