As you will remember, in the Fendi case, a NJ boutique sued Weil Gotshal for legal malpractice based upon claims of conflict of interest. The conflict was said to be in representing both the boutique and Fendi or its parents too. The case went to trial with great publicity and settled just prior to summations. An attorney, fairly new to the case, took it from just prior to trial to settlement.
But now a case specific blog amusingly entitled WE’LL GETCHA & MANGLE” is saying that Nathan Dershowitz has been retained to ask for a mistrial in a case never settled. Truth or bunk? Keep tuned. Details.
