Judge upbraids class-action lawyers over expenses

A federal judge in Washington state has publicly disciplined two attorneys from a prominent plaintiffs firm for claiming unreasonable expenses while handling a securities class action.

U.S. District Judge Justin Quackenbush issued an order of reproval on July 24 against attorney Joy Bull, who, according to the order, resigned as a partner from Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd last week at the firm’s request. The order issued a lesser sanction, an admonition, against John Grant, still a partner at the firm.
