Baker & McKenzie said Thursday that it had requested and received the resignation of indicted partner Martin Weisberg. Weisberg was indicted last week in the Eastern District of New York on charges that he participated with five other defendants in a stock-fraud scheme that netted two overseas short-sellers $55 million in illegal profits. He has pleaded not guilty.
