JONES DAY SNARES WHITE-COLLAR EXPERT John Cline, a white-collar crime specialist who once defended Oliver North, has joined Jones Day’s San Francisco office. Cline was previously a partner at Freedman Boyd Daniels Hollander Goldberg & Cline, a boutique in Albuquerque, N.M. Cline has been involved in a wide range of cases for clients including Oliver North, the former national security aide who was a central figure in the Iran-Contra prosecutions, James Smith, a former FBI agent charged with mishandling classified information, and Wen Ho Lee, the Los Alamos nuclear scientist accused of mishandling nuclear secrets. Cline said he was impressed by Jones Day lawyers he met in Los Angeles, including white-collar crime specialist Brian Sun. “Jones Day is a great firm, and this is a great opportunity,” Cline said. Elwood Lui, managing partner of Jones Day’s San Francisco office, said Cline has “cultivated a reputation as one of the leading white-collar criminal defense attorneys in the U.S., and we are delighted that he has agreed to join us at Jones Day.” Jones Day is the third-highest grossing firm in the country, according to The American Lawyer, a Recorder affiliate. The firm’s San Francisco office, opened 15 months ago, now employs 30 attorneys. Its Menlo Park outpost, opened in 2002, has 20 lawyers. Even as Cline expressed enthusiasm for his new firm, he called his former shop “one of the great little firms in the country.” And he quipped, “I’m sure they’ll take my name off the door sign now that I’m gone.” — Adrienne Sanders JUDGE REFUSES TO FORCE PROTEST IN CENTRAL PARK NEW YORK — A Southern District of New York judge on Monday refused to order New York City to allow a demonstration of 75,000 people on Central Park’s Great Lawn on Saturday, in advance of the Republican National Convention. The plaintiffs were barred by the doctrine of laches, and the city’s permit scheme is constitutional, both on its face and as applied here, Judge William Pauley III found in National Council of Arab Americans and Act Now to Stop War & End Racism Coalition v. City, 04 Civ. 6602. The doctrine of laches “bars injunctive relief where plaintiff unreasonably delays in commencing action,” Judge Pauley wrote, citing Tri-Star Pictures v. Leisure Time Prods., 17 F.3d 125, 132 (2d Cir. 2003). The National Council of Arab Americans applied for a rally permit on Jan. 7 and claimed as early as June 25 that the city Parks Department had violated the First Amendment in denying the permit. However, “plaintiffs delayed until Aug. 13, 2004 — 1 1/2 months after the Parks Department’s final ruling and a mere 15 days before the proposed demonstration — to come to this court for relief,” Judge Pauley wrote. “Then, instead of moving by order to show cause with a complete set of motion papers, Plaintiffs moved for a preliminary injunction without supporting papers.” The judge concluded that, “to a significant degree, the emergency created by this preliminary injunction is of plaintiffs’ making.” — New York Law Journal
