A troubled December for Milberg Weiss

The indicted law firm has been disqualified twice in the last two weeks from serving as lead counsel because of concerns over the effect of the indictment on their ability to try cases (including a scathing ruling by U.S. District Judge D. Brock Hornby of Maine); such concerns could well be self-fulfilling. Milberg's troubles may get worse before they get better; if Milberg adheres to the traditional end-of-year bonus and profit-distribution schedule for its attorneys, that means that they could be due for a rash of resignations in January. I'd hate to see Milberg wither away because of the indictment before they can be convicted in a fair trial.
