IJA Brigade member Rafael Salomão Romano has sent in a brief update on the status of the Lago Agrio homologation case in Brazil. Rafael previously posted about the case back in July 2012.

Here’s the latest: the Superior Tribunal de Justiça had sought an opinion on the case from the Federal Public Attorney, because the case involved claims for environmental damages. The Public Attorney has given his opinion to the court, though I don’t have a copy, and all that remains is for the court to render the judgment.

Thanks, Rafael, for the update!
