Associates Call and Law Firms Respond In a Friday afternoon cacophony, several firms, such as Arnold & Porter; Latham & Watkins; Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher; and Sidley Austin, joined the ranks of the associate-salary war. • Hurry Please: Gitmo Lawyers Ask for Quicker Response to Appeals Last week, a coterie of attorneys representing Guant�namo detainees filed a motion with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit asking it to speed up its response to their appeal. • Latham’s Links: Firm Hires Another Enron Prosecutor Latham & Watkins nabbed a second former Enron prosecutor last week when Kathryn Ruemmler joined the D.C. office as a partner in the litigation department. • Rent Control: Buildings Owned by Convicted Slumlord Could Be Bought Tenants in two buildings operated by convicted slumlord David Nuyen will get a chance to organize and possibly buy the buildings. • Bush to Nominate Friedrich for Kessler Seat President George W. Bush is expected to nominate former White House insider Dabney Friedrich to fill the recently vacated seat on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, two sources familiar with the process say. • Second Thoughts: Plea Deals Being Offered in Drug Cases It appears prosecutors don’t really want to put a cocaine-abusing informant who crashed an unmarked police car on the stand. Several defense attorneys said prosecutors began offering plea deals last week in some drug cases that had been scheduled for trial. • Church and State (Court): Legal Claims Over Land Filed Over Episcopal Breakaways Legal claims were flying last week between the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia and 11 breakaway congregations regarding valuable property in Northern Virginia.
