USA/Ecuador: Donziger Facing Prosecution in Chevron Saga

August 1, 2019

Steven Donziger is going to have his day in court, again — this time as a criminal defendant.

Donziger, the lawyer, Obama buddy, and climate activist who tried to extort a few billion dollars from Chevron, is the target of an order from district judge Lewis Kaplan, who has on his own authority appointed three lawyers to prosecute Donziger on criminal contempt charges.

Donziger’s shakedown was, by my reckoning, the largest extortion attempt in human history, and the case involved everybody from activist rock stars such as Roger Waters to Democratic operatives such as Karen Hinton, sometime contributor to Politico and the Huffington Post 

From Judge Kaplan’s original ruling:
