No Punitive Damages Against Chevron in Human Rights Suit

The Recorder is reporting that a jury has returned a defense verdict in a lawsuit against Chevron involving alleged human rights violations in Nigeria. We previously posted about potential issues that might have arisen in this case had the jury awarded punitive damages. Those issues will have to wait for some other lawsuit seeking punitive damages based on extraterritorial acts.
