Harvard Law Professor Charles Nesson joins the challenge of an HLS Alum and human rights attorney who helped his Indigenous clients win a landmark $12 billion pollution judgment in Ecuador against Chevron Corporation.
“I am representing Steven Donziger because Judge Kaplan’s finding that he is guilty of judicial bribery is a manufactured lie that not even Kaplan stands behind,” said Nesson. “This is not any sort of basis to take disciplinary action to suspend a lawyer, especially without a hearing where he is not allowed to challenge the finding. This is patently unconstitutional.”
Professor Nesson extends an opportunity for student pro-bono work in support of the case and indigenous human rights attorney and HLS alumnus, Steven Donziger ‘95.
