Great moments in legal ethics, the follow-up

Following up on our earlier dispatch, the Daily Business Review reported last week that "Embattled lawyer Jay Wingate agreed Thursday to drop out of 77 shipboard injury cases after Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines claimed his firm paid a cruise employee for inside information.
