A federal judge has sided with a group of insurance companies, finding that they’re not obligated to cover the criminal defense fees of a former partner with the firm Shulman, Rogers, Gandal, Pordy & Ecker, who is accused of conspiring to fraudulently take more than $12.5 million in Somali government assets.
