Lawyer Steven Donziger Under House Arrest For Suing Chevron
The human Lawyer has been under house arrest for over 650 without being convicted because he dared sue Chevron
Steven Donziger helped win an $18 billion settlement on behalf of 30,000 Amazonian Indigenous people who were exposed to toxic waste from Chevron’s oil drilling in Ecuador. The company waged a legal campaign against him and when he refused to turn over his computer and cellphone, he was accused of contempt of court. Although not convicted, he has been under house arrest for over 650 days. Federal prosecutors declined to prosecute him so the judge, who is a member of the Right Wing Federalist Society, appointed a private law firm with ties to Chevron to do it.
Donziger talks to us... from his house, obviously, about the “parade of horrors,” what makes the case unprecedented, why he remains hopeful and what people can do https://www.donzigerdefense.com/.
