Chevron rails against Ecuador judgment enforcement action

Source: Chevron 

In response to media reports that the Lago Agrio plaintiffs' lawyers have initiated recognition and enforcement actions of their fraudulent judgment in Canada, Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) issued the following statement:

"The Ecuador judgment is a product of bribery, fraud, and it is illegitimate. The company does not believe that the Ecuador judgment is enforceable in any court that observes the rule of law.

"If the plaintiffs' lawyers believed in the integrity of their judgment, they would be seeking enforcement in the United States - where Chevron Corporation resides. In the U.S., however, the plaintiffs' lawyers would be confronted by the fact that seven federal courts have already made findings under the crime/fraud doctrine about this scheme.

"Chevron will vigorously defend against any enforcement action. Chevron will also continue to pursue relief against Ecuador in our pending arbitration and against the plaintiffs' representatives in our RICO action pending in New York."
