[DOC] Statement of the Plaintiffs' Attorneys in Wiwa v. Royal Dutch/Shell, Wiwa v. Anderson, and Wiwa v.SPDC

We want to express our satisfaction that these cases have provided the plaintiffs with substantial compensation for their claims. After 13 years of fighting these cases, our clients now have resources which will allow them to start to rebuild their lives. We are also pleased that, although this settlement is only for our clients’ own claims and they did not negotiate on behalf of the Ogoni people, this settlement has the potential to benefit thousands of other people in Ogoni.
