New York - A New York judge presiding over a forthcoming Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act [RICO] lawsuit brought by super major Chevron against supporters of an Ecuadorean $19billion embezzlement fraud is to rule whether a retired UK oil executive should testify in the upcoming NYC case.
Judge Kaplan has promised to cast an eye over a situation involving toxic pollution and subsequent clean-up of a British wetlands patch called the Norfolk Broads.
The case involves retired UK oil executive Reg Patton Boggs who is currently causing controversy on both sides of The Pond after being threatened with prosecution for restoring a 'dead Norfolk Broad' to newly regenerated beauty without relevant legal permits.
Today his advisers said Reg fears he may be implicated in something 'far more sinister' as local Norfolk residents say he could be part of the Ecuadorean pollution of the Amazon Rain Forest if local global warming bollocks is to be believed.
Patton Boggs says he spent $500,000 of his retirement fund remediating a toxic backwater in East Anglia only to be charged with gentrification of a fetid eyesore and registered conservation site.
Speaking to QM-NewsCorpse reporters the retired executive denied he'd even so much as filled up a tank at a Chevron-Texaco filling station during a driving vacation through the USA.
"They've got me mixed up with the US Patton Boggs," Reg said this afternoon, "a firm of shyster lawyers in Judge Kaplan's upcoming RICO suit."
The litigation sees mighty super major Chevron take apart 20 years of legalistic bulls++t designed to fleece it of nineteen billion bucks.
Expect a Shootout-at-the-OK-Corral kinda ruling as the Ecuadorean claims are ruled out of court.
