Here is another legal malpractice case for Vinson & Elkins. This legal malpractice case arises from their handling of San Diego’s investigatation of “the city’s financial disclosure practices and its pension system, and to represent the city before the Securities and Exchange Commission, which was investigating the city.
Vinson & Elkins released its report in September 2004, and in 2005, its contract was terminated after the company had been paid $6.2 million for its work.”
On July 26, City Attorney Michael Aguirre, in his latest interim report, charged that the company “repeatedly, systematically and knowingly” disregarded the obligations stated in its contract with the city. Details.
