If a publication misidentifies an associate as being at a firm she left months ago, would anyone care? More precisely, why should Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison litigation partner Gregory Lippetz demand a correction from Courthousenews.com after it mistakenly called “Survivor” castoff Stacey Stillman a Brobeck associate when these days she’s at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati? Turns out embarrassment has nothing to do with it. Lippetz doesn’t want to distance himself and his firm because Stillman was in a controversial TV series where she ate bugs on prime time. Irrelevant, too, is her whining that fellow contestants kicked her off CBS’ “Survivor” because of anti-lawyer sentiment. Or that she told the world via Internet her nickname is “Boom-Boom.” Or that she made a tennis shoe commercial. But litigation — shudder — is another matter. Last month, Stillman sued CBS in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging “Survivor” was rigged. The producers sued back. That’s when Lippetz’ passion for accuracy surfaced. “I wouldn’t want anyone to think Brobeck has any kind of conflict of interest with CBS,” he explains. “Not that they’re a client, now, but they certainly are someone we’d like to do work for.”
