Panel rules for Chevron in Ecuador Amazon case

Ecuador's President Rafael Correa shows his oil covered glove at the site of the Aguarico 4 oil field in Ecuador, Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013. Correa visited the site to call attention to oil contamination in Ecuador's Amazon region. Earlier this year, Ecuador awarded a $19 billion judgment to the residents of this area for Texaco's contamination of this rainforest between 1972 and 1990. But Chevron Corp., which bought Texaco in 2001, said it won't pay because it says Texaco dealt with the problem before it was bought. (AP Photo/Dolores Ochoa)
