Well folks, that was a short break and so much for not reporting on developments during what is normally a quiet week.
It appears that on December 18, 2008, Williams Lea has filed a complaint against Heller Ehrman LLP claiming, among other things, unpaid invoices totaling $2.2 million.
The complaint, filed in San Francisco Superior Court, can be found here.
One interesting and disturbing note is that Williams Lea is claiming over $373,000 in severance packages for Williams Lea employees. Perhaps this is part of Heller Ehrman’s contract (the original or the one renegotiated after the dissolution vote on September 26, 2008).
None the less, and nothing against the great staff at Williams Lea, but I’ll be damned if non-Heller people get severance when ex-Hellerites are still waiting for accrued vacation, waiting time penalties (in California) and WARN Act monies.
