Plaintiffs Respond to the Chevron Outtakes

The Ecuadoran victims of Chevron's massive environmental disaster call on American Lawyer to correct inaccurately translated video outtakes posted on its website and to properly contextualize the contents. The outtakes, from the award-winning documentary Crude, were exclusively edited by Chevron's counsel at Gibson Dunn and clearly were not reviewed by the magazine for accuracy. Further, American Lawyer should post all 600 hours of the Berlinger video outtakes, the vast majority of which show Chevron's misconduct in creating what many experts believe is the world's worst oil-related disaster...The posted snippets from director Joe Berlinger's Crude…represent less than 0.1% of the 600 hours shot over three years. Berlinger himself has decried Chevron's manipulation of the outtakes and its mischaracterization of the contents.
