Suing venture capitalists



From Law.com's description of an article by Xenia P. Kobylarz in The Recorder: "After years of reluctance by entrepreneurs and investors to sue the venture capital community that helped fuel the Internet boom of the '90s, lawsuits targeting VCs have become nearly as common as the failed dot-coms that littered Silicon Valley after the bust. And law firms are getting in on the action. With new funds and larger players to hit up for seed money, there are 'a lot more people willing to blame others when things go wrong,' says Michael Rhodes, Cooley Godward's head of VC litigation."
