Milberg Weiss Bershad & Schulman, the US plaintiffs’ firm recently indicted for alleged referral fees, has picked up a powerful ally in the shape of the US Congress.
Congress issued a statement slamming the US Department of Justice’s actions in indicting Milberg Weiss.
Signed by four Democrat Congressmen - Charles Rangel, Carolyn McCarthy, Gary Ackerman and Robert Wexler - the statement says: “The unprecedented recent indictment of Milberg Weiss Bershad & Schulman is a very thinly veiled attempt by the Bush Administration to accomplish by bullying and intimidation what it has not been able to do by law - to end class-action lawsuits, one of the few tools remaining to safeguard the American consumer.”
The statement comes almost a month after Milberg Weiss and name partners David Bershad and Steven Schulman were indicted by Los Angeles federal prosecutors for allegedly paying referral fees to named plaintiffs in shareholder lawsuits.
