Friends of the Earth campaign leader Geert Ritsema, second left, and plaintiff Eric Dooh, left, give a statement after the ruling in the court case of Nigerian farmers against Shell, in The Hague, Netherlands, Wednesday Jan. 30, 2013. Dutch judges have rejected most of a landmark case brought by Nigerian farmers against Royal Dutch Shell for poisoning their fish ponds and farmland with leaking pipelines. The Hague Civil Court rejected all cases against the Netherlands-based company. However, in one case it ordered a subsidiary, Shell Nigeria, to compensate a farmer for breach of duty of care by making it too easy for saboteurs to open an oil pipe. (AP Photo/Peter Dejong)
