The Service Employees International Union and the Teamsters have sued six law firms (including Beasley Allen, Girardi and Keese, and Levin Fishbein) for their handling of the Vioxx settlement. The complaint pleads that the law firms representing plaintiffs mishandled the Vioxx settlement, failing to provide money to cover lien rights of ERISA health plans.

Given Bexis’ firm’s involvement in the case (on the defense side, naturally, and so not involved in this new litigation), we’ll say no more on this subject.
