Blog Watch Briefs: Updates on Earlier Lawsuit Stories
Here are two updates on two previous stories involving ongoing disputes.
First up is the brewing controversy over Avvo, a newly launched legal rating service that Bob Ambrogi and I each covered here and here. Following the preliminary and somewhat critical reviews, now, the first class action suit has been filed against Avvo by a group of lawyers challenging various aspects of Avvo, specifically the controversial and allegedly deceptive rating system. Kevin O'Keefe also posts on the lawsuit here, while over at MyShingle, I ponder why some ratings systems get sued, but not others.
Second, here's an update on Roy Pearson's $54 million lawsuit (reduced from $65 million) lawsuit against his dry cleaner for losing his pants that we covered here. Pearson's trial concluded yesterday, and while a decision isn't expected until next week, there's already one ruling in: Pearson won't be re-appointed to his administrative law judge position in DC due to adverse publicity from the case. Sounds like another lawsuit to me ... stay tuned.
