Chevron calls for investigation of Ecuador ruling
Chevron Corp. on Wednesday urged Ecuador's authorities to investigate the conduct of plaintiffs' lawyers and a judge who handed down an $18 billion decision in an oil pollution case.
The oil company said in a statement that it submitted a letter to the country's prosecutor general alleging there was fraud and corruption in the case. In the letter, the company accused the plaintiffs' lawyers of working with Judge Nicolas Zambrano to draft the February judgment.
Karen Hinton, U.S. spokeswoman for the Ecuadoreans who won the judgment against the company, dismissed those accusations.
