Almost everyone knows that Millberg, Weiss, at one time the country’s leading class action law firm, has been indicted. The allegation is that the firm paid plaintiffs be serve as class representatives.
I have followed the story for several years but this article in Fortune (and posted on money.cnn.com) caught my eye while I was searching for something to read on an airplane. You will not believe how it came to be that largest class action firm in the country got into so much trouble.
I do not know if the firm violated the law; I give it the same presumption of innocence I try to give everyone charged with a crime. But if the facts set out in this article are true, the firm has got a problem. A real problem.
