Bar exam questions on Web draws subpoena The National Conference of Bar Examiners is hunting for the anonymous person who published 41 questions from the 2006 Multistate Bar Examination on an Internet blog within hours of taking the exam last year. The conference asserts in federal court documents that whoever posted the questions on tabandbrandy.blogspot.com infringed the MBE copyright and disregarded instructions that prohibit exam-takers from disclosing exam questions and answers. Lawyers from the Washington office of Houston-based Fulbright & Jaworski last week obtained a subpoena in U.S. district court in Atlanta commanding Atlanta-based EarthLink Inc. to surrender the identity of the person who posted the questions on the blog. Ex-Qwest CEO found guilty of insider trading Joe Nacchio, A former AT&T executive tapped to transform Qwest Communications International Inc. into a major telecommunications competitor, was convicted of 19 of 42 insider trading charges last week after one-time top executives described his relentless drive to meet revenue projections without revealing the financial risks. The jury held that Nacchio illegally sold stock in the first five months of 2001 when he knew the Denver-based company faced financial challenges and relied heavily on one-time sales to meet revenue targets. U.S. District Judge Joe Nottingham set a July 27 sentencing date for Nacchio, who is free on $2 million bond. Harriet Miers to return to Locke Liddell & Sapp Former White House Counsel Harriet Miers will return to Locke Liddell & Sapp, the firm she formerly co-managed, on May 1 as a partner. Miers will rejoin the Texas firm’s public policy group and the litigation group. In 2001, Miers left Locke Liddell to move to Washington to become assistant to the president and staff secretary. In 2003, she was named assistant to the president and deputy chief of staff. She became White House counsel in February 2005. In October 2005, President George W. Bush nominated Miers to the U.S. Supreme Court, but she withdrew her name from consideration three weeks later amid controversy over her qualifications for the high court. Wachtell brings on a lateral in rare move Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz has taken a step toward making its executive compensation and benefits practice whole again. After losing two partners in recent months, the New York firm has quietly hired Michael Segal, the former co-head of executive compensation and benefits at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, who will start April 23. The move is an unusual one for Wachtell, which has rarely sought out lateral partners. In the firm’s 42-year history, just two other partners have lateraled into the firm. Dana Corp. replaces GC over law license status Dana Corp. replaced General Counsel Michael DeBacker on April 10, six days after Corporate Counsel, an affiliate of The National Law Journal, reported that he was not properly licensed to practice law in Ohio, according to a company filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. DeBacker, general counsel for Toledo, Ohio-based Dana since 2000 and an employee since 1979, continues working at the company in a nonlegal capacity, according to Dana’s SEC filing. DeBacker didn’t respond to a request for comment. Fried Frank loses two top antitrust partners A day after losing the head of its antitrust practice to a rival New York firm, Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson is losing another top antitrust partner to the government. The U.S. Department of Justice on April 17 named Deborah A. Garza deputy assistant attorney general for regulatory matters. She will oversee transportation and other regulated sectors for the department’s Antitrust Division. A day earlier, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft said it had recruited Fried Frank’s antitrust chairman, Charles “Rick” Rule, to head its own practice in the area.
