Response from Chevron to Amazon Watch's rejoinder
Decisions by courts around the world (United States, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Gibraltar and an international tribunal in The Hague) confirm that the fraudulent Ecuadorian judgment against Chevron should be unenforceable in any court that respects the rule of law. An international tribunal in The Hague - including an arbitrator chosen by the government of Ecuador - unanimously confirmed that, following completion of a $40-million environmental remediation program approved by the Ecuadorian government, Chevron was released from all the environmental claims on which the fraudulent Ecuadorian judgment is based. The plaintiffs’ own scientific experts and consultants have admitted that there is no scientific evidence to support their environmental claims.
... Donziger’s allegation has already been addressed in court. A meritorious lawsuit cannot be a SLAPP and Chevron’s lawsuit was held by the courts to be meritorious... In its 2014 decision, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York ruled for Chevron, finding that Donziger committed a pattern of racketeering activity that included extortion, mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering, witness tampering, obstruction of justice, and violations of the Travel Act and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The federal court held that Donziger and his associates obtained a $9.5 billion judgment against Chevron in Ecuador through fraud and racketeering.
... Donziger filed counterclaims against Chevron, which were rejected because they lacked any legal or factual merit. Donziger’s actions should be repudiated by anyone concerned with the rule of law... Chevron is not a party to the criminal case against Steven Donziger, which was initiated by the court.
