I was speaking recently with a Chevronologist who will remain nameless, and we were speculating that perhaps the reason the Second Circuit has delayed so long in announcing its decision in the Chevron v. Donziger case because it was awaiting the Supreme Court’s decision in today’s case of the day, RJR Nabisco v. European Community (S. Ct. 2016), which was decided on June 20. More recently, Steven Donziger himself has trumpeted the Nabisco decision, asserting that the decision was a “major setback” for Chevron. More formally, he argued the importance of the decision to the Second Circuit in a letter submitted under FRAP 28(j). And I have been thinking a good deal about Nabisco in connection with one of my own cases. So I thought it would be worthwhile to feature the case, presenting it primarily through the lens of the Donziger case.
