AND WE’RE BACK - Lawyers on both sides of Yahoo’s massive data breach litigation will try again today to win over U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh, who in January rejected their $85 million proposed settlement. Koh’s thumbs-down was based in part on “unreasonably high” attorney fees of up to $35 million. She also questioned why it took 32 firms to work on legal issues she labeled “not particularly novel.” Yahoo’s lead counsel are Ted Boutrous at Gibson Dunn and Anne Marie Mortimer at Hunton Andrews Kurth. Plaintiffs’ lead counsel is John Yanchunis at Morgan & Morgan.
FINDING CLIENTS - A bill winding its way through the Texas Senate would strictly regulate lawyer advertising for prescription medication and medical device litigation, and would empower the state attorney general to reach out-of-state law firms looking for clients in Texas, supporters say. Angela Morris reports that the bill seeks to impose civil penalties for violations under the state’s Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
