A subpoena that ordered Joe Berlinger, the director/producer of ‘Crude,’ to turn over 600 hours of footage to lawyers for Chevron will be stayed until a hearing on June 8. On Friday, May 21, Judge Denny Chin, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York, ordered the hearing to consider the subpoena issued by Judge Lewis Kaplan on May 6. The day before, Kaplan had granted Berlinger and his legal team a 10-day extension on the subpoena, until May 31. The June 8 hearing before a three-judge panel will hear Berlinger’s motions for a stay pending appeal and an expedited appeal, according to The New York Law Journal.
