Judge: No Sanctions for Lawyers Suing Skadden, Staffing Firm

, The Am Law Daily


A U.S. district judge in New York has refused to allow Tower Legal Staffing to request sanctions against David Lola, an attorney who sued Tower and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom for failing to pay him overtime for his work on a document review assignment, or against Lola's counsel, D. Maimon Kirschenbaum.

    If eighteen jurisdictions assert that temporary document review is not the practice of law thereby frustrating the ability of the plaintiff and those similarly situated to earn a living in their craft then I think Tower may be the party filing frivolous and harassing motions.
