U.S. Judge Sides With Chevron, Blocks $9.5 Billion Judgement.  In 2012 the Ecuadorian Supreme Court ordered the oil giant Chevron to pay $9.5 billion in damages to five indigenous tribes of the Amazon rainforest. Chevron sued in federal court in the Southern District of New York. On March 4, 2019 the judge declared the judgment null and void, saying it was the fruit of a five-year effort to extort and defraud Chevron.
