Question: What does a NOLA based law firm that claims legendary trial lawyer/litigator Wendell Gauthier have in common with Boss Hogg’s law firm Brunini, Grantham, Grower & Hewes out of Jackson? Simple the color green as in cash, money, and greed as both firms have been caught with their hand in the conflict of interest cookie jar representing both sides in the current oil spill litigation. The disregard for basic legal ethics is stunning IMHO.
I only bring this up because a friend sent me this love letter from Magnum to Mark Holstein in BP’s legal department for the consideration of the Slabbed Nation.
I am writing in follow up to my previous correspondence. Our firm is eager to begin working on this matter on BP’s behalf. Please advise if we should contact anyone.
With kindest regards, I remain
I hate to share the vision of how I see the oil spill litigation unfolding but when the politicians, along with the local bar are too busy trying to cash in instead of representing the public’s or their client’s interest, “not much good” will be the end result except for those on the inside of the money grab.
Our previous coverage of unethical “show me the money” lawyers and the BP oil spill:
- In this episode of Magnum J.D., Bull Durham sells his machines to BP and creates a conflict of interest for Magnum’s firm Gauthier Houghtaling and Williams
- As the Magnum turns…..Slabbed finds Louisiana AG Buddy Caldwell!
- Bum steer – Barbier adds goverment liasions to Steering Committee but denies motion for special government track in oil spill litigation
- In this episode of Magnum JD – A not-much-class class action filed against BP by Magnum associate Eric O’Bell
Stay tuned as I’m certain more turds will be floating to the top as this unfolds.
