Two defendants convicted in the criminal kickback case against Milberg -- former partner Steven Schulman and former lead plaintiff Howard J. Vogel -- are scheduled to report to federal prison this week. Both were sentenced as part of a lengthy investigation in which federal prosecutors alleged that the firm and several of its current and former partners obtained $251 million in attorney fees by paying kickbacks to lead plaintiffs. Milberg agreed to pay $75 million to settle charges last year.
