Background: environmental claims arising from Ecuador oil operations that were dismissed by U.S. District Judge William Alsup after he found that three plaintiffs' "case was 'manufactured by plaintiffs' counsel' after two of the claimants admitted never actually contracting the illnesses they were suing Chevron over." [Baxter/American Lawyer]
