    of reading about some of the problems with the fraud allegations, but I haven't followed this case, so I can't really remember what it was all about.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Chevron had tried to make hay out of lawyers drafting statements for witnesses.  It's always easy to claim that some sleazy lawyer caused their problem.  Of course, it's entirely possible that many of the indigenous plaintiffs are illiterate (and some of them may not even speak Spanish for all I know), so someone would have to put down their statements in writing.
