Judge In State Street Case Lawyers Up As Class Action Firm Fights $1.1M Reduction In Fees

The judge who cut the fees of a prominent class-action firm by more than $1 million for alleged misconduct in a long-running lawsuit against State Street Bank & Trust now says he needs his own lawyer to defend that decision before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, according to a report in Legal Newsline.

In a brief order coming after more than eight years of legal wrangling, U.S. District Judge Mark L. Wolf said he will appoint an attorney to represent his court as Lieff Cabraser appeals his February opinion. The opinion trimmed the firm’s fees, citing its double-billing of attorney hours and failure to halt a suspicious $4 million payment to an attorney who did no work on the case.
