As Pellicano racketeering case drags on, a top law firm may be coming apart

The Los Angeles Times today carries an interestingly-timed revelation about the law firm of super-lawyer and person of interest in the Anthony J. Pellicano wiretapping case Bert Fields. A gaggle of Fields’ colleagues at Greenberg Glusker, including Dale F. Kinsella and Howard L. Weitzman are, according to the LAT,

“expected to take seven attorneys with them when they exit Greenberg, Glusker, Fields, Claman, Machtinger & Kinsella in mid-April.”

Of course, this has nothing – nothing at all! – do to with the Pellicano fracas. Alcatraz_prison_cell.jpg

As Weitzman put it (in a prepared statement, lest anyone think he’s too spontaneous):

“If we do, it is because we want to go back to practicing in a smaller environment,” Weitzman said, adding that the decision has nothing to do with the federal probe.

And by “smaller,” they do not mean a 5′x9′ cell.
