Here is a fuller story on the legal malpractice bridge.
Toronto-based law firm Gowling Lafleur Henderson is being sued by Ambassador Bridge owner and trucking mogul Manuel "Matty" Moroun in U.S. District Court.
According to the Detroit News, bridge execs say the Canadian law firm has jeopardized the Ambassador Bridge’s plan to build a second six-lane span across the Detroit River because one of the firm’s partners is also representing the bridge’s opponents to the plan in Windsor, Ont.

The law partner named in the suit, environmental expert David Estrin, has asked U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds to dismiss the suit.
