Lago Agrio: The Amici Are Coming!

Several amici curiae have filed briefs with the Second Circuit. Here are the briefs, for your reading pleasure. I haven’t had the time to do more than scan them yet.

I did note one fun zinger in the Civil Law Scholars’ brief:

We also put to one side Judge Kaplan’s conclusion that as a matter of fact it would have been impossible for the three-judge panel of the appellate court to conduct a de novo review of the 188 page trial judgment and the trial record within the period available—this despite the fact that Judge Kaplan himself was able to produce a 586 page decision less than a month after the close of briefing after the end of a seven week bench trial.

Update: Chevron has filed an opposition to Ecuador’s motion for leave to submit its amicus brief, and an opposition to the other amicis’ motions.
