Illinois-based law firm Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger beat a legal malpractice suit, after a federal judge held that no evidence linked the law firm’s conduct to any harm to litigation funder Signal Funding, which had accused the law firm of breaching its duty by also representing a former Signal Funding employee who launched a competing venture in adverse matters.
A Delaware Chief Judge has summoned a personal injury attorney who has filed nearly 800 infringement lawsuits in the last three years and many others to appear in a series of hearings probing whether the parties have accurately disclosed information about their funding arrangements, building on the judge's standing order for parties in all cases, not just patent disputes, to disclose when they’ve accepted litigation funding from an outside source—an uncommon requirement seen in few other US courts.
