Tribunal: Ecuador failed to prevent enforcement of judgment against Chevron

An international arbitration tribunal last week found the Republic of Ecuador has violated international law and its treaty obligations to the United States in failing to prevent the attempted enforcement of an $18 billion-plus judgment against Chevron Corp.
