Chevron's Oil Pollution in Ecuador: Enforcing Foreign Judgments

Join CSIL for this event featuring two Ecuadorian activists - Carmen Zambrano and Humberto Piaguaje - who have been involved in ongoing litigation against Chevron for oil pollution in Lago Agrio.  The activists' legal team secured a $9.5 billion judgment against Chevron in Ecuadorian courts and has been trying to enforce that judgment abroad since 2011.  The 2nd Circuit came down against enforcement in Chevron Corp. v. Donziger this past year, on the grounds that the Ecuadorian judgment was fraudulently secured.  The activists' legal team is now seeking enforcement in Canada.
