"An attempt by Chevron Corp. to unfreeze its assets was dismissed Wednesday by an appeals court in Argentina, where the winners of a $19 billion environmental judgment in Ecuador are suing to force the oil company to pay. Plaintiffs’ attorney Pablo Fajardo told The Associated Press that the court refused to lift an embargo that a lower-court judge imposed in November in the case, which involves oil contamination left after Texaco Corp. pulled out of the Amazon decades ago."
