So remember when the Montgomery County Commissioners invited "proposals from law firms to explore legal strategies and options" to keep the Barnes from moving? As I mentioned last week, Bryn Mawr lawyer Mark Schwartz got the job, and today we learn what his strategy will be:
"Schwartz said he would file a petition in the next few weeks asking Judge Stanley Ott to review his decision authorizing the Barnes' relocation against the directives of its deceased founder, Albert C. Barnes. The appeal will be based on 'new information' showing that politicians, private interests and the Barnes' board of directors worked together to undermine Barnes' wishes as outlined in the trust he left behind, Schwartz said."
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, not only was Schwartz's the winning proposal -- it was the only proposal, which probably is the best indication yet of what a longshot this is.
