Amiga's Attorneys File motion to Withdraw as Their Attorneys in the Thendic-Amiga Lawsuit : Comment 126 of 147ANN.lu

>> Since that law firm is also abandoning the law suit against Genesi SARL,

>> that law suit.

> Woohoo! That's some leap of logic you're making there. It "screams"
> indeed. LOL.

Prove me wrong then.

> The law firm is withdrawing their services from Amiga Inc. End of story.

Nope, that is not the end of the story. I wish it was, but its not.

> The reason may be a disagreement over the way the defense should be
> handled which may leave cousel in an untenable position, or it may

When is the last time you had a US lawyer envolved in a civil dispute? They do as the client directs them to do it. Lawyers will give their opinions and best advise and carry on what the client wishes since the client is the one paying. The only exception I can think of if the client is demanding the lawyer to do something illegal or unethical that would endanger the lawyer's standings with the courts.

> have to do with payment of legal fees over the ongoing case. Most likely
> it's the latter.

Agreed.

> Abandoning a case simply because the lawyers have suddenly decided it
> has merit is a less likely scenario.

Follow the money for a minute. Just how would such a law firm get paid if the client currently does not have a pot to piss in? Either they believe in McBill's hype and spin about M$ coming to the rescue (and they would be able to pay for the firm's services) or it's based on contingence fees of winning the counter law suit. Had the law firm be convinced that there is a reasonable chance of them winning the counter law suit and making contingence fees, do you really think they would withdrawning? It's about being in business, the law firm sees there is nothing to be gained financially by keeping Amiga Inc as their client. 40% of $14 Billion isn't to be sneezed at. ;-)
