Manage episode 358900890 series 1449094
The litigation finance industry has boomed over the past several years, with investors looking to bankroll contentious cases in the hopes of securing a big payday. But what happens when the financiers begin to take a heavy hand on case strategy? That question is at the center of a new suit against litigation funding behemoth Burford Capital, which has been accused of blocking a client from accepting “reasonable” settlement offers. Joining Pro Say this week is Law360’s Hannah Albarazi who will discuss the case against Burford and its implications for the lucrative litigation funding industry. Also this week, a feud between Littler Mendelson PC and one of its former attorneys over allegations of stolen documents has spilled into the courtroom and onto social media. Plus, a Delaware judge prepares to rule in a bitter dispute between Dominion Voting Systems and Fox News over the network’s reporting on false claims that the voting technology company meddled in the 2020 presidential election.
