We know this has nothing to do with drug and device law, but we can’t resist sharing this little ditty.
The Wall Street Journal Law Blog reported this morning that former class members in securities cases filed by Milberg Weiss are now suing the firm (and certain individual partners of the firm). The complaint pleads claims under RICO (primarily) and is based on the widely publicized allegations that Milberg Weiss improperly made secret payments to people who served as named plaintiffs in securities class actions.
As Milberg Weiss well knows, lawsuits like these are often filed in bunches. This complaint could be the first of several.
Here’s a link to the Wall Street Journal Law Blog item, which in turn links to the complaint against Milberg Weiss.
