Also from Overlawyered.com is this piece about a New York judge questioning the legal fees sought in tobacco litigation. The behavior of the attorneys at the hearing in question appears to be deplorable.
The tobacco litigation has been a festering sore of an embarrassment to the legal profession in my opinion. An interesting piece from the Cato Institute suggests that the settlement is in fact unconstitutional. The legal fees are beyond exhorbitant and appear in many cases to be politically corrupt.
