The name Steven Donziger may not mean much to most Israelis, but there are people who think that history will list him alongside legends like Martin Luther King, Jr., or Ruth Bader Ginsburg. As of now, the situation of the American attorney is far from terrific – and he may even soon be sentenced to prison. In fact, for almost two years he has been under house arrest in his New York apartment on the Upper West Side, wearing an electronic ankle bracelet. He has been disbarred, his bank account has been frozen and his passport was confiscated.
