A unanimous panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday ordered the maker of a documentary about a $27 billion environmental damage suit in Ecuador against Chevron Corp. to turn over outtakes from his film. The 2nd Circuit's order, however, narrowed the scope of subpoenas issued by Southern District of New York Judge Lewis A. Kaplan, which had directed filmmaker Joseph A. Berlinger to turn over to Chevron 600 pieces of footage that were not included in his film "Crude."
