Chevron is suing one of the architects of a massive environmental torts case against the company for his role in filing a separate civil suit against the energy giant in April 2006. A federal judge tossed the bulk of a suit filed by Cristobal Bonifaz after finding that plaintiffs' attorneys "manufactured" claims. Now Chevron is accusing Bonifaz of malicious prosecution, seeking $4 million in legal fees, and unspecified damages.
