Who wants a Snow job?

A group of plaintiff lawyers, led by Kazan, McClain, Abrams, Fernandez, Lyons & Farrise and called the KM Group, are trying to buy the rights to a lawsuit against CC by the former attorneys at late, great Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison. The suit accuses the Magic Circle firm of killing off Brobeck by hiring a 16-partner group led by Tower Snow Jr. to start CC's late, far-from-even-remotely-good California practice.

We had no idea you could buy the rights to a lawsuit. Can you also trade them? Like, we'll offer you a class action against McDonald's for two employment discrimination suits against Wal-Mart and a suit to be named later? That'd be brilliant...
