GOODIN, MACBRIDE LATERAL JOINS STEEFEL Steefel, Levitt & Weiss has added three new attorneys, including lateral partner James McTarnaghan, to its regulatory practice in San Francisco. Previously a partner at San Francisco’s Goodin, MacBride, Squeri, Ritchie & Day, McTarnaghan, 44, focuses on telecommunications and energy regulation. “His experience with regulatory commissions and keen sense of the issues these companies face will continue to make him a valuable asset to his clients,” said Barry Lee, chairman of the firm. McTarnaghan has practiced before the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the California Public Utilities Commission. He earned his J.D. from George Washington University Law Center in 1983. Coming with McTarnaghan are of counsel Kathryn Fugere, 37, and associate Sarah Leeper, 29. Fugere earned her law degree in 1993 from Golden Gate University School of Law. Leeper earned her J.D. from Brigham Young Law School in 1999. — Jason Dearen GEORGIA JUDGE SHOT OUTSIDE HER HOME ATLANTA, Ga. — Fulton Superior Court Judge Cynthia Wright was shot early Monday morning outside her home in what police called a “domestic” incident. Ten hours later, Marcia Gibson, 50, accompanied by her lawyer Lynne Borsuk of Decatur’s Peters, Roberts, Borsuk & Rubin, surrendered to Atlanta police. Gibson faces charges of aggravated assault in connection with Wright’s shooting. Atlanta police spokesman Sgt. John P. Quigley said the suspect was “a known acquaintance” of the judge. Wright, 48, who presides over divorces, child custody disputes and family violence cases in the court’s Family Division, was in critical but stable condition at Grady Memorial Hospital as of late Monday afternoon, according to a hospital spokeswoman. Wright had a collapsed lung from one bullet that entered through her back and came out through her chest. She also had a bullet in her hip. Her lung had been reinflated by medical personnel, a hospital spokesman said. Wright was shot twice in the back, according to Atlanta police, who arrived outside her Morningside home shortly after 7 a.m. One of Wright’s colleagues, Judge Jerry Baxter, said “Everyone here’s been more or less told that this has really nothing to do with court. This is something outside the courthouse,” Baxter said. — Fulton County Daily Report
