Melvyn Weiss, the co-founding partner of Milberg Weiss, said his meeting with a representative of a paid plaintiff was "less sinister" than the federal government alleges and that his failure to turn over a subpoenaed fax was bad judgment, not "criminal arrogance," according to sentencing papers filed on Wednesday. Weiss, who pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy, is scheduled to be sentenced on Monday.
