Letter to The Court: Unresolved Due Process Issues


In a letter to Judge Kaplan submitted October 31, Steven Donziger states:

“I write again to direct your attention to concerns that the due process rights of the
defendants are being violated and that we are being denied our right to a fair trial as
guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.”

The letter details a trial rife with due process issues, including the possible harassment of a key witness, the use of biased special masters – who bill for their time in secret – in an upcoming deposition, the absence of the Lago Agrio trial record in the RICO proceedings, and the Court’s failure to rule on testimonial and evidentiary objections.
