“And you thought you billed a lot of hours…”

by Walter Olson on April 21, 2011

Ted Frank, who’s challenging the Cobell (Indian trust) class action fees as part of his work with the Center for Class Action Fairness, catches out a lawyer who claims to have worked for more than nine hours a day on the case for 14 years, including a 7-year stretch in which he purportedly worked “an average of eleven hours a day, every day seven days a week without a single day off.” [Above the Law, earlier]

reminds me of the joke where the attorney is protesting to St Peter, at the gates of heaven…”but I’m too young to be here”, St Peter replies “according to your billed hours your are 276 years old”

“reminds me of the joke where the attorney is protesting to St Peter, at the gates of heaven”

Are you sure the attorney showed up and the right gate?
