Lawyer appeals ruling that blocks U.S. collection of award in Chevron case

After beating plaintiffs’ lawyer Steven Donziger in court earlier this month, Donziger has filed an expected appeal of the verdict that he used fraud to secure a $9.5B pollution judgment against Chevron (CVX) in Ecuador and seeking an emergency stay of Judge Kaplan’s decision while a federal appeals court considers the merits of Donziger's challenge, a process that could take months to resolve.

Donziger's lawyer says Kaplan's ruling is unlikely to survive review from the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals; the company says the appeal is another attempt by Donziger to avoid taking responsibility for his actions.

Meanwhile, CVX is asking the judge to award it $32.3M in attorney fees, a sum the company says reflects only part of the total costs it incurred.

    This IS THE EPITOME of Unmitigated Gall.


    donziger should immediately be Indicted and Arrested for Fraud and Insidious Extortion, and his firm made to pay back CVX for ALL attorney fees. !

    Shakespeare wrote in Henry the Sixth, "First thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers".


    Just quoting the Bard. Opinions expressed by him are not necessarily those of the writer.
