FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. — Sharon Y. Eubanks, who led the Justice Department team that prosecuted a landmark case against tobacco companies and later accused the Bush administration of ordering her to weaken the government’s case, has joined Holland & Knight. Eubanks joined the Tampa-based firm’s Washington D.C. office as a member of the firm’s pro bono team. The pro bono team, which performs 60,000 hours of pro bono work annually, has nine full-time lawyers. Eubanks worked at the Justice Department for 22 years and retired in 2005. She publicly spoke out in March 2007 about the tobacco racketeering case, saying a supervisor demanded that she and her trial team drop recommendations that tobacco executives be removed from their corporate positions as a possible penalty. She also said in published reports that other supervisors told her to tell key witnesses to change their testimony and rewrote her closing argument. Eubanks fills the position left vacant by Robin Rosenberg, a 10-year employee of Holland & Knight who left earlier this year to take a position as deputy director of Florida’s Children First. She was the head of Holland & Knight’s pro bono department in Florida.
