WARNing for Brobeck, and Maybe Morgan, Lewis & Bockius


At least that's the hope of Mark Thierman, a Reno lawyer who has filed suit against both law firms on behalf of former Brobeck employees, claiming a WARN act violation. See the story atlaw.com. If litigated it could flesh out the rather sparse law on a couple of WARN points, what are the parameters of the failing business exception and the reach of successor liability. My guess is that neither whatever remains of Brobeck or Morgan, Lewis are that eager to help clarify the law in their capacity as a party defendant.
