Bill Neukom — the former GC of Microsoft – is moving up at Preston Gates & Ellis, from partner to chair. Neukom, who succeeds longtime chair Richard Ford, has spent his career swinging between Gates. Before he was at Microsoft, he worked for William Gates Sr. at the firm that preceded Preston Gates. He spent 17 years at the software company, building its legal department from five to 600 lawyers … After 19 ballot recounts, Susan Gantman finally claimed a seat on the Pennsylvania Superior Court — by a margin of 28 votes. But the former Cozen O’Connor family-law attorney still can’t relax in her robes.

Leavitt, who had three years remaining in his term, perhaps made his heaviest legal footprint as a lieutenant governor, casting the deciding votes to retain capital punishment and to establish the legislature’s formal opposition to abortion.

One son, James, donated a kidney for the transplant from which Leavitt was recovering when he died … A judge investigated for peeping and prowling is striking back against his accusers. Florida Circuit Court Judge Charles Weaver Cope is suing the women who called police after he allegedly used a stolen key to try to enter their hotel room.
