For me but not for thee



If you follow class actions, you might be amused by the irony that plaintiffs' firm Napoli, Kaiser & Bern persuaded a federal district judge that a putative class action against it over fen-phen settlements should be dismissed because its contracts with its clients were governed by arbitration agreements. (Mark Hamblett, "Federal Judge Dismisses Fen-Phen-Related Action Against Napoli Law Firm", NY Law Journal, Apr. 14). Related story: Overlawyered, Feb. 14; "It's Trial Lawyers Vs.
