Comments on: Why plaintiffs’ lawyers would rather sue Facebook than JPMorgan http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/2012/05/25/why-plaintiffs-lawyers-would-rather-sue-facebook-than-jpmorgan/ On the Case Fri, 15 Jul 2016 20:42:45 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: EllieK http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/2012/05/25/why-plaintiffs-lawyers-would-rather-sue-facebook-than-jpmorgan/#comment-229 Tue, 29 May 2012 11:58:55 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/?p=1074#comment-229 At first I thought that “Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, Girard Gibbs, Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz” was a single law firm due to the bold font. (Can you tell that I am not familiar with plaintiff law firms?) Regardless, you are so right about them, even after appropriate parsing. And this too:
“(inevitably) Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd”.

I did a 2-second search and found the lot of them taking top prizes in the SCAS 50 of 2011 http://www.blbglaw.com/news/awards/00131  /_res/id=sa_File1/BLBG-
Those sums are enormous, over a billion dollars are a year for the top three.

Yes, the Facebook IPO is a mess. I am much more worried about JP Morgan though, particularly after today’s news, that JPM sold off assets with high returns in order to cover the aftermath of their trading disaster.
