Forgive my foray into the world of youtube, but I have come across some clips from the documentary “Crude” that might be of some interest.
Last week a Federal Judge in New York denied an appeal to shield the documentary film’s footage. The AP, via the Wall Street Journal, has the story. Now, more clips from the documentary, which chronicles the ongoing Ecuadorian legal battle between Chevron and the Ecuadorian government, have surfaced.
Regardless of your take on the case, many of these videos are fairly fascinating. Check them out here.
Also of note is a new column by Michael D. Goldhaber of the AM Law Daily. The article is titled, The Global Lawyer: Judging Chevron in Ecuador on the Evidence. It provides a basic overview of the facts of the case and is worth a read.
