Activist Lawyers Win Award Following Chevron Suit

Two Ecuadorian attorneys have been awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize for their efforts to force San Ramon-based oil giant Chevron to clean up contaminated land and waterways in the northeastern Amazon... Chevron, meanwhile, has claimed that Fajardo and Yanza have "twisted the facts" and that the attorneys have sued the company for financial gain only. Chevron has also alleged that Petroecuador, Ecuador's national oil company, is responsible for polluting the area, not Texaco [now part of Chevron].
