Stratus Consulting has provided sworn declarations outlining the firm's knowledge of the plaintiffs' lawyers' misconduct in the ongoing environmental litigation in Lago Agrio, Ecuador as well as testifying that there is no scientific merit to the plaintiffs' damages claims against Chevron Corp. and Texaco Petroleum (TexPet).

Chevron recently settled pending fraud and extortion claims against Boulder, Colo.-based Stratus. Stratus had been the lead environmental consultants to the plaintiffs' lawyers in the trial.

"We are pleased that Stratus came forward to reveal the truth. We call on others with knowledge of the fraud tainting the trial in Ecuador to come forward and do the right thing," said Hewitt Pate, Chevron vice president and general counsel.
