Chevron’s harassment continues

In an apparent effort to intimidate everyone involved in the lawsuit or whoever dares to mention the contamination in Ecuador, Chevron went to court to ask Joe Berlinger, the director of “Crude” for access to all the footage that was filmed while working on the documentary. There are over 600 hours of film which includes interviews with people involved in the lawsuit on both sides. Most of the material was filmed with an agreement of confidentiality.

Chevron hopes to find some material that can help their case.

The director says it would be a violation of his First Amendment rights and is prepared to fight Chevron’s request.

A hearing is scheduled for April 30 in federal court in New York.
