APPEALING: John Goodson is key player in appeal of disciplinary action arising from class action lawsuit.
Interested in the case of the class action plaintiffs' lawyers
hammered with disciplined by federal Judge P.K. Holmes
of Fort Smith for not informing him that they had a pre-cooked settlement of a long-standing insurance claims case in his court when they dropped the federal case and settled in state court?
This is the case that features John Goodson
, UA trustee, husband of Supreme Court Justice Courtney Goodson and big-time political player/bankroller.
Mark Friedman reports here for Arkansas Business
on the back and forth last week in arguments before the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
on the attorneys' plea to have their admonishment — damaging professionally — reversed. Sounds like they might have some sympathy for various arguments on the three-judge panel.
