McKool Smith recently settled a malpractice claim brought against it by former NFL football players and asked the 9th Circuit to remand the players' appeal to district court. McKool has been working with Manatt Phelps & Phillips in the appeal, which was argued a few months ago. On Monday, the appellate court issued a brief order saying it could not dismiss the part of the appeal dealing with McKool while retaining the part with Manatt, which hasn't settled.
