The church group suing Weil, Gotshal & Manges for allegedly steering it into a “disastrous” bankruptcy is accusing the firm of withholding from discovery e-mail correspondence of the partner who led the 2004 Chapter 11 filing.

The St. Louis-based National Benevolent Association, which sued Weil Gotshal in bankruptcy court in Texas last fall, said in a motion filed Oct. 13 that the firm had failed to produce all the e-mails of partner Deryck Palmer, the lead lawyer in the group’s bankruptcy.
