Manuel A. Gómez, professor of law at Florida International University and friend of Letters Blogatory, has posted The Global Chase: Seeking the Recognition and Enforcement of the Lago Agrio Judgment Outside of Ecuador to SSRN. Manuel has been teaching a course that focuses on the Chevron/Ecuador case, so he is a natural for an article like this. Part I of the article is a helpful summary of most of the main pieces of the dispute: the lawsuit in Ecuador, and the appeals there; the attempt to enjoin enforcement in New York; the BIT arbitration; and the Canadian enforcement proceedings. Part II focuses on proceedings in Brazil and Argentina. This discussion may be of particular interest to Letters Blogatory readers, since if you’re getting your information about the case here, you won’t learn much about the details of the relevant Brazilian and Argentine law and proceedings.

Congratulations, Manuel, on the paper!
