Chevron Seeks Prejudgment Attachment of RICO Defendants’ Assets

The Amazon Post – November 29, 2011

Chevron has filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York a motion for attachment, seeking to prevent the Lago Agrio plaintiffs, lawyers, and financiers from collecting and dissipating monies based upon the fraudulent judgment that they have obtained through collusion with a corrupt Ecuadorian court. This motion relates to Chevron’s fraud and RICO claims against those pursuing sham environmental claims against it.

In a separate proceeding, Chevron awaits the opinion of the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit with respect to its suit seeking a declaration that the fraudulent judgment is unenforceable.
