How Appealing

Jim McCaffrey has more in the Philadelphia Bulletin on the staffing issues involved in the Friends of the Barnes lawsuit, including the news that appellate law blogger extraordinaire Howard Bashman has been added to the team. McCaffrey also adds the following:

"In another matter raised during the [Dec. 21] conference call, Judge Ott noted the Barnes Foundation attorneys have asked for the [opponents] to pay the Foundation's legal fees if it is found The Friends filed a frivolous petition. He left open the issue of whether [their former attorney] Mr. Schwartz could be held partially liable for those fees if the appeal is found to be frivolous."
