CHECKS AND BALANCES – For all the warnings about cyber breaches and online phishing scams, it’s worth remembering that law firms can still be scammed the old school way too. John C. Hernandez of Dorsey & Whitney has entered an appearance for Zions Bancorporation, N.A. in a lawsuit arising from a check fraud scam against a Texas law firm. The complaint, filed July 29 in Texas Southern District Court by Thompson, Coe, Cousins & Irons on behalf of Elliott & Polasek, contends that the bank failed to identify a fraudulent cashier’s check sent to the law firm by a phony client, resulting in the loss of nearly $100,000. The case is assigned to U.S. District Judge Charles Eskridge. Read the full complaint and stay up to date on major litigation nationwide with Law.com’s Legal Radar.
