Fighting Back

Here is an article on the recent legal troubles of both John Torkelsen and Silicosis plaintiffs firms.

Torkelsen was formerly affiliated with Milberg Weiss the originator of California's famous "strike suits". He was recently "flipped" and is now cooperating with prosecutors on their investigation into Milberg and its practices. His wife also recently pleaded guilty to fraud in connection with their ownership of Acorn Technology Fund.

The article notes that some plaintiffs lawyers in California are now worried:

"Flipping Torkelsen would be the end of any semblance of order as we know it," one worried plaintiff attorney told The Recorder, a California legal daily.

Said another: "He knows where all the bodies are buried."
