This Time, It's Criminal

Could the US Attorney's office in New York be investigating plaintiff's firms for coaching their witnesses in asbestos cases? GAF's lawyers claim to have passed on some info to federal prosecutors there involving some the the nation's biggest plaintiff's firms. Could some of the biggest names in the business be doing the frog march in orange jumpsuits?

Of course, if this is true, it really hurts the plaintiff's lawyers and their clients that play by the rules, let alone the defendant companies and their employees and shareholders. It's kind of sad if is true. You'd think that if you had a legitimate case, you wouldn't need to suborn perjury, but heck, I'm an idealist.
