D.C. Suspends Law License of Steven Donziger

According to Legal Newsline, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals suspended attorney Steven Donziger from practicing law in D.C.

Donziger was also suspended earlier this year in New York for “professional misconduct in violation of former Code of Professional Responsibility.” The suspensions stem from the now-infamous Chevron lawsuit in Ecuador over alleged pollution. The $9.5 billion judgment he won was later found by a U.S. judge to be “procured by fraud,” including bribery, intimidation of judges, pressuring scientific experts to falsify reports, and other acts.

New York and Washington, D.C., were the only jurisdictions that Donziger was licensed to practice law. According to the article, it is now likely that his legal career is over.
