I was the victim of sexual assault on the work place a year ago. The experience was very traumatizing and I had to leave my job because of it. I couldn’t go back to that place knowing that someone would try to harass me each day. After leaving, I contacted a criminal lawyer in virginia to make a lawsuit for me. I wasn’t going to let that harasser get away with what he had done.
I chose the best lawyer to present my case to the court. I didn’t want the harasser to have any chance of getting off. I was having some trouble presenting my case to my lawyer. It was a difficult event to retell, and I had to keep myself from breaking down while doing so, but I used all my strength to do it. After telling the lawyer what happened, the lawyer was able to form a case.
The harasser was delivered a subpoena to appear in court. He hired his own lawyer and was prepared to do whatever it takes to win the case. I finally had to see him again in court. I had this sick feeling every time I had to look in his direction. Siting in court with him for such a long time gave me a mix of emotions, from disgusted to angered.
It was a hard experience, but in the end, I came out on top. I won the court case and the harasser was ordered to pay for his actions. He was also fired from the company where he worked. I was contacted by the owner of the company and he asked me to return to work in the same position as the harasser who he hired. I got a new position and a pay increase from being rehired at the company.

When it comes to court battles that involve multi-billion dollar settlements, it is always going to get ugly to some extent. The story is the same about the controversial chevron ecuador judgment as well. The Ecuadorian court ordered the behemoth US corporation to pay compensation to the villagers to the tune of $18.3 billion. Whenever there is a threat of losing money, these corporations are likely to wake up and use the entire arsenal that is available in their possession. Now, Chevron is in this position and is using their huge financial resources to prevent any more loss of money as well as reputation.
One of the main strategies used by Chevron is to make the Ecuadorian judgment in to a ‘controversial’ one.

Why is it an illegal chevron ecuador judgment? In the current times, we are used to the sight of big corporations getting away with murder without any significant impact on them. At most, they will face a few calls for sanctions from a few politicians and social workers. But, within no time, the politicians and social workers will be bought out by the big corporation and the hue and cry would subdue. The ordinary people, who have a very short term memory, will forget all about the story in hardly any time at all.
In the case of Chevron, many people hoped justice will prevail and the guilty will be punished. Many people supported the judgment of the Ecuadorian court that went against the huge US Corporation making it responsible for paying the huge compensation $18.3 billion.
