The U.S. Supreme Court denied a bid by Chevron Corp to block an $18.2 billion judgment against the company in a pollution case in Ecuador.
A lower court threw out an injunction blocking enforcement of the judgment. Chevron appealed to the Supreme Court, which rejected the appeal without explanation.
Justice Samuel Alito did not participate in the decision.
On Jan. 26, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York said Chevron had been premature to challenge the judgment, which residents of Ecuador’s Lago Agrio region won in February 2011 over pollution of the Amazon jungle and resulting damage to their health.
