UK COURT THROWS OUT NIGERIAN OIL CORRUPTION CASE AGAINST SHELL AND ENI

On 22 May, Reuters and others reported that the High Court has dismissed a $1.1 billion case Nigeria had brought against Royal Dutch Shell and Eni related to a dispute over the OPL 245 oilfield, while a related trial in Italy continues.  The OPL 245 oilfield is also central to a corruption trial in Milan in which former and current Shell and Eni officials are on the bench, as well as court proceedings Nigeria started against JP Morgan, which processed some of the payments in question.
