I'm hearing this morning that Chevron filed court documents saying they were "injured" by this cartoon
I did in conjunction with Amazon Watch
. (I'll post more info as soon as I get the court docs or other documentation.) Watch the cartoon for the more entertaining version, but the nutshell version is this: Chevron was sued by villagers in Ecuador for leaving toxic waste all over the jungle. Chevron lost the case and was hit with a multi-billion dollar judgment. Chevron appealed and lost that, too. Then, Chevron filed RICO charges
against the villagers and the lead attorney on the case. You know, accusing them of racketeering and being involved in a huge conspiracy to
clean up the jungle
extort money from Chevron. No WONDER the Chevron lawyers make the big bucks! Very creative guys.
Oh, and for bonus points, guess who just hired
the lead Chevron lawyer to help him out of a certain bridge-related jam? That's right, this guy
