News Tech: (Reuters) – A New York state judge on Wednesday dismissed a legal malpractice lawsuit against law firm BakerHostetler brought by the brother of a body armor magnate, David Brooks, who died in prison six years ago.

In any case, it is unclear whether the estate could show how the law firm was negligent in its representation, Bluth said.

Supreme Court Justice Arlene Bluth in Manhattan said David Brooks’ brother Jeffrey was not authorized to sue BakerHostetler and partner George Stamboulidis on behalf of his brother’s estate. Jeffrey Brooks filed the lawsuit in September 2021, but only last month asked a Florida probate court to re-open his brother’s estate, Bluth said.

Attorneys representing Jeffrey Brooks and BakerHostetler did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the ruling.

But it is “mere speculation” that this fact would have resulted in David Brooks escaping the charges, the judge found. Prosecutors assembled another grand jury, which returned a superseding indictment against Brooks, rendering this point moot, Bluth said.

The case is Brooks v. Baker & Hostetler LLP, New York County Supreme Court, No. 655754/2021 For Jeffrey Brooks: Steven Czik of Czik Law

For BakerHostetler and George Stamboulidis: Jonathan New and John Siegal of BakerHostetler Read more:
