Jones Day filed a complaint Friday, accusing Motley Rice of abetting and attempting to profit from the theft of a confidential boardroom document from Sherwin-Williams in the course of the Rhode Island lead paint litigation. Motley Rice's Fidelma Fitzpatrick says the law firms were in the midst of "good faith negotiations" over the document's return when the suit was filed. Responding to the complaint, Fitzpatrick says, "Like 3-year-olds in the sandbox -- never have I dealt with more unprofessional attorneys."
