More than 20 lawyers have filed objections to a $49 million antitrust class action settlement with West Publishing Corp., which owns BAR/BRI, the nation's largest provider of bar review courses. One of the attorneys, Ben Nutley, who represents seven objectors, recommended in court papers that the judge eliminate McGuireWoods and its former partner who brought the case, Eliot Disner, from serving as lead counsel in the case. A final settlement hearing is set for Monday.
