Breaking: Supreme Court Denies Cert. in Naranjo
Posted on October 9, 2012
Today the Supreme Court denied Chevron’s petition for a writ of certiorari in Chevron v. Naranjo, the case in which the Second Circuit had vacated Judge Kaplan’s preliminary injunction barring efforts at obtaining recognition and enforcement of the Lago Agrio judgment. The Second Circuit’s decision rested on what I think was a questionable basis, namely, that a judgment debtor could not seek a declaratory judgment about the enforceability of a foreign judgment until the judgment creditor had sought to enforce it. More to come.
