"Former Silicosis Clients Sue O'Quinn Law Firm, Estate"



The late plaintiffs' attorney John O'Quinn was dinged for $35 million for overcharging breast implant plaintiffs. Now, 187 former clients of O'Quinn are suing over overcharging and failing to distribute settlement proceeds in silicosis litigation. [Texas Lawyer]

The case was brought in Texas state court, but one presumes that O'Quinn had the same mandatory arbitration clause with these clients that he did with his breast implant clients. As we've covered in the past, even trial lawyers claiming mandatory arbitration clauses are unconscionable have mandatory arbitration clauses with their clients, but the hypocrisy goes unnoted in press coverage of the arbitration issue.
