A decades-long lawsuit to make Chevron Corp. pay for cleaning up oil-field pollution in Ecuador suffered another blow Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal in the case, which has been closely watched worldwide. The justices let stand a U.S. District Court ruling that a $19 billion judgment against Chevron in an Ecuadoran court in 2011 was the result of an elaborate fraud orchestrated by an American attorney, Steven Donziger. “The facts of the Ecuadoran judicial extortion scheme and the illegality of the plaintiffs’ lawyer misconduct have been finally and conclusively affirmed by the legal system of the United States,” said R. Hewitt Pate, Chevron’s general counsel, in an email. Chevron’s opponents in the case on Monday accused the U.S. Supreme Court of acting like “biased referees” in a ballgame, allowing an American company off the hook for misdeeds aboard. “Ultimately, Chevron will be forced by other jurisdictions to pay every last dollar of the judgment imposed on it for ...
