The ruling halted a decision by an Ecuadorian judge last month that ordered Chevron to pay for a massive cleanup of petro-pollution in the Amazon jungle. Monday's ruling is the latest in a 18-year-long legal battle over environmental damages in the rain forest -- but is it the end of the long-running dispute?
