Cartoon "injures" Chevron: Update

 
Okay, so here it is in a brief filed in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York.  Chevron adds "web videos" and "cartoons" to the list of ways they have been injured by the evil conspiracy of people extorting them to clean up the jungle take their money.  You can read the full brief here.
In short, the brief is an attempt to show that Chevron has in fact been injured and does have standing.  Judging by the way the brief is written, I think Mr. Mastro may be a little busier with Chris Christie than he'd like.  A few of the slightly-clearer excerpted tidbits include:
 

I. Chevron Has Suffered, and Will Continue to Suffer, Ongoing Injuries

. . . Chevron continues to be threatened with a variety of “real, immediate, and direct” injuries. 

. . . they have already unleashed a barrage of near-daily press releases, letters to government officials and shareholders, web videos, and cartoons in an effort to extort a payoff from Chevron.

 

If you'd like to find out more about the people who are trying to "extort" money from Chevron, you could start by looking here.  I'll update more as I find out additional information, but in the meantime, spread the word and count your free speech blessings!

Oh, and in case you missed it, here again is the cartoon that injured Chevron.

    Who on earth was it who decided Corporations were people? Its delusional, but thats the era we are living in when madmen are in control and taking us all screaming down the road to our own extinction.Maybe its a side effect of being filthily rich that you just become disconnected to authenticity , as people pamper your egos and don't express what they feel or really think of you, they become disconnected to weather , always in an artificial temperature and they become so convinced of their power as the world rushes to please them they think of themselves as above their fellow man and in control of nature. This scary lawsuit is to most people just evidence of their insanity, but if they win this case then we can expect the real world of nature to become so out of balance that in the not so distant future it won't matter how much money or gold or even Britcoins you have there will be nothing left to buy.

    Chevron's conduct is over the top. It is a hopelessly rogue corporation that should have its corporate charter revoked and its assets sold at auction. Then, its lawyers should possibly be sanctioned for manipulating the justice system. Shareholders should not have to pay for the losses resulting from the conduct of the officers and directors of the corporation. The officers and directors should. They want to set a precedent? Fine. Game on.

    Wouldn't it be great to receive those 47 RICO "conspirators" as guests in the Bay Area. They can present themselves in front of Chevron Pleasanton headquarters to request a meeting with the injured parties. It seems to me the best use of funds is to generate as much sunshine and exposure as possible. This story seems to be well told by Fiore's work. Chevron's strategy must surely depend on the fact that very few have paid attention to their insane maneuver. I would think it would be easy to attract our local politicians to such a demonstration, the cause is so clear and pure that not even our slimiest politicos could turn it down. Then it could be turned into a fresh story. Maybe even 60 Minutes? Then again, Lowell Bergman is right here and might be open to helping.

    Sadly, it's not a rogue corporation. It's a typical corporation.

    When we see a corporation executed for murdering people, I'll believe that "coporations are people." We could start with the cigarette companies.
