The Daily Caveat mentioned in passing
several days ago that Lerach Coughlin, home of the Wall Street Journal's favorite litigator, Bill Lerach, had been removed from upcoming securities fraud litigation against Halliburton. The client in that case, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Supporting Fund Inc., has since given more details
on the removal of Lerach's firm as well as co-lead counsel, David Scott of Scott + Scott, linking the switch directly to the continuing indictment against Lerach's former firm, Milberg Weiss. As was previously mentioned, DC uber-attorny David Boies has picked up the reins of the case.
Meanwhile Milberg and the plaintiff's bar in general are bracing for what some are calling the trial of the century
