"Chevron used a US law designed to attack the Mafia in an effort to 'criminalise' human rights advocacy. This allowed Chevron to claim to be a victim of the very villagers it had poisoned." --human rights attorney Steven Donzinger

Abuse of power is ugly in all its manifestations--I hope more than enough assets are seized soon to pay up. Thanks for the update Judy

Disgusting how Chevron can buy (or at least greatly delay) justice. There should be some really harsh penalties against corrupt judges, which this judge Kaplan is deserving of.

On a different subject, this makes me think of how wrong the Libertarian notion is that we don't need any regulations because lawsuits will stop giant corporations from wrong-doing. There could not be a more clear cut case of a company blatantly destroying the environment and poisoning people, and decades later justice still hasn't been served. Imagine how hard it would be to prove that certain health problems were caused by a certain company putting toxins into the water system.
