NYT on "the kings of tort"

For those who missed it, the front page of yesterday's New York Times business section featured a comprehensive story entitled "Behind the Breakup of the Kings of Tort" (registration required), on the split of erstwhile law partners Mel Weiss of New York and Bill Lerach of San Diego. Their firm, Milberg, Weiss, Bershad, Hynes & Lerach, had been the dominant player in securities class actions, and the two firms after the split remain so.
