Since Milberg agreed to pay $75 million five years ago to resolve its role in the long-running criminal case, lawyers who worked at the firm who said they were not part of the conspiracy have gone to arbitration to try to recoup lost income they said was caused by leaving the New York-based firm.
Until now the results of those arbitrations have not been made public. But a lawsuit filed last month in U.S. District Court in Manhattan by former Milberg partner Michael Buchman included details of both the results of his arbitration, which was decided in April 2012, as well as an earlier arbitration by another group of former lawyers at the firm. Buchman left Milberg in 2007 and is now a partner at Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross.
