A Hofstra University Law School professor hired by Weitz & Luxenberg apparently found that the law firm did “nothing wrong” regarding its relationship with former New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. Federal charges, however, claim the law firm paid Silver more than $3.2 million in 2013-2014 for referring asbestos cases. Further, the charges claim “Silver did no work on the cases and used his official position to direct $500,000 in state funds to support research by the doctor who referred clients to the firm.” (New York Law Journal)
