After RICO trial win, Chevron demands $32 million from plaintiffs lawyer Donziger for attorneys fees
Chevron Corporation asked a federal court Tuesday to award it $32 million for attorneys fees it incurred during a successful fraud and racketeering trial against U.S. lawyer Steven Donziger.
U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan in New York said he found "clear and convincing evidence" that a two-decade legal effort to punish Chevron for polluting the Ecuadorean rain forest was tainted by corruption.
