US District Court for the District of Columbia, 9 December 2017, Hulley enterprises, Yukos Universal and Veteran Petroleum v. Baker Botts LLP, Misc. Case No. 17-1466 (BAH)

Yukos shareholders sought the reconsideration of the denial of their application to compel discovery. The discovery aimed at obtaining all communications among attorneys within the respondent firm, involving its long-standing client Rosneft and Russian Federation. The petitioners claimed Rosneft had manipulated Armenian Yukos-related proceedings. The Court dismissed the application finding no “clear error” occurred or “manifest injustice” resulted from the denial of their discovery demands to respondents.
