Judge temporarily enjoins enforcement of Ecuador judgment #indigenous
In Chevron v. Donziger, in a 131 page decision, the judge has granted Chevron a preliminary injunction against the enforcement, by the Ecuadorean indigenous plaintiffs, of the $17 billion money judgment they have obtained against Chevron for its pollution of the Amazon.
The judge conditioned his grant of an injunction upon Chevron's filing a bond in the amount of $21 million.
