  •  Big Law Firms (none)
    One thing that Chief Justice Roberts and Harriet Miers have in common is that they worked for big law firms.  This should not be disqualifying.  

    It is a little unfair to grouse about the settlements paid in class actions by law firms.  There are plenty of large law firms that will end up paying much larger settlements in class action cases involving Enron, and in malpractice cases.  A big law firm should settle when its conduct contributes to a fraud or when it commits malpractice.  What counts is whether the law firm has culpability in connection with the fraud and whether Ms. Miers had guilty knowledge.
