The men who formerly owned Yukos Oil Co. have promised a “lifetime of litigation” against the Russian state over the 2004 seizure of their company, which they value at more than $100 billion. Half a world away, Chevron Corp. has warned that a “lifetime of … litigation” will follow if Ecuador does not render what it considers justice in its 18-year war with residents of the Amazon over oil pollution in the vicinity of Lago Agrio. The Yukos and Chevron cases have very different histories. But both are fought on multiple battlegrounds. Both involve allegations of domestic court abuse in emerging nations. And both feature litigants with the funding and motivation to make good on their vows never to back down.
