Ecuadorians Seek Chevron Ruling

A lawyer for indigenous groups suing Chevron Corp. said Monday the judge should skip further analysis of wells and rule on their charge that the U.S. oil giant never properly cleaned up toxic pollution in a swath of Amazon jungle.... [The plaintiffs' counsel] said they were waiting for [Judge] Yanez to rule on a motion to skip the remaining 64 inspections around the jungle. [The plaintiffs' attorney] accused Chevron, which merged with Texaco in 2001, of trying to "indefinitely delay" the trial process. Chevron's attorney, Alejandro Callejas, denied any foot-dragging, saying his clients want "to finish this as soon as possible, but with the truth, not with manipulation." [also refers to Petroecuador]
