Banned in Boston (and elsewhere)
The Atlanta (not Boston) law firm of King & Spalding was banned from practicing in Madison County Circuit Judge Nicholas G. Byron's courtroom. Former Attorney General Griffin Bell (and a member of King & Spalding) directed criticism at the way lawsuits alleging harm from asbestos were being handled in Judge Byron's courtroom, claiming that defendants' constitutional rights are being violated.
According to the article, when "contacted Friday night at his home in Edwardsville, [Judge] Byron said: 'I have no comment. Good night.'"
Guess he's not having a good day (or evening).
Could be worse, though. They could have been the accounting firm of Ernst & Young, who was
banned from accepting new clients for six months by an SEC judge.
It must be catching.
