Piece by Erin Brockovich on another lawyer who led an important case against a shameless corporate environmental vandal – in this case, Texaco/Chevron which poured shit-tons of toxic waste into the Amazon. Only in this case, Chevron was able to twist the US legal system to persecute the lawyer representing the Ecuadorians, instead. Scary stuff.
