Closing Arguements for Bowoto v Chevron planned for Tuesday Nov. 25

Posted by sarahjinn on November 20, 2008

On Monday Chevron will present its final day of testimony and evidence. Closing arguments will be given on Tuesday, November 25 and jury deliberations will begin on Wednesday, November 26, the day before Thanksgiving. It’s unknown how long the jury will deliberate, but this landmark case could hear a verdict very soon.

We encourage those of you in the Bay Area  to quietly and respectfully observe the closing arguments on Tuesday to show your solidarity with the Nigerian plaintiffs who have worked so hard to bring their case to Chevron’s home town. Go to   450 Golden Gate, 19th floor Courtroom 10 in San Francisco. Court is in session from  8:30am-3:30pm on Tuesday November 25.

    Hi, I was at the rally on the first day of the trial and was wondering if there will be another held when the verdict comes in, or any sort of press friendly event. Thanks!
