What's being said

  • UnCoverUp

    There is a downside for lawyers "managing reputation" of a public corporation as prescribed if the publications being suppressed could alert "markets" about financially or personally injurious wrongdoing by corporate officers and their lawyers. As GM‘s (defective ignition switches), DuPont‘s (herbicide contaminated Benlate cases) and ConocoPhillips‘ (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations in Libya-- http://www.scribd.com/doc/198815820/ConocoPhillips-Shareholder-Proposal-2012) lawyers have hopefully learned, their actions to suppress these publications will be evidence in shareholder derivative and product liability litigation showing that the lawyers conspired with the wrongdoers to defraud financial markets and/or cover-up product safety problems from consumers.
