Going bare



The Madison County Record notes another instance in which "consumer protection lawyers" display a certain lack of attention to the protection of their own clients:

Two of the most active class-action plaintiff's attorneys in the Madison and St. Clair County courts do not carry malpractice coverage, even though one was once suspended by the Illinois Bar for harassing several women.

While such lack of coverage does not violate Illinois law, it raises questions as to the adequacy of representation that class-action members in the firm's cases are receiving.

Eric D. Freed and Paul M. Weiss, of the Chicago firm Freed & Weiss LLC, continue to represent class-action plaintiffs and have won a series of major class action verdicts in Illinois.
