Antisuit Injunctions and International Law


Those interested in antisuit injunctions and/or corporations accountability for human rights violations should not miss Roger Alford’s post on a Second Circuit amicus brief addressing the propriety of antisuit injunctions under international law.  The amicus brief addresses an appeal of Judge Kaplan of the Southern District of New York’s preliminary injunction enjoining Ecuadorians and their lawyers from enforcing the $18 billion Ecuadorian judgment (the so called “Lago Agrio” judgment), concluding that their was a substantial likelihood that Chevron would prevail in its argument that the judgment was procured by fraud.
