A Manhattan appeals court has rejected a billionaire investor's bid to obtain the work product of three plaintiffs firms, led by Milberg Weiss, which he claims settled a class action against software maker CA Inc. for too little. The Appellate Division, 1st Department ruled that major CA shareholder Sam Wyly, as an absent class member in the CA suit, did not have the same right to lawyers' files as a client in a traditional "bipolar" attorney-client relationship.
