Speculation Mounts as to Whether Class Action Plaintiff Lawyer William Lerach Also will be Indicted
As the class action plaintiff firm Milberg Weiss Bershad & Schulman and two of its partners, David Bershad and Steven Schulman, moves forward, Molly Selvin of the Los Angeles Times reports that the setting of a trial date has been postponed because of the prospect of additional indictments. The federal court reportedly expressed frustration that the government’s 7-year investigation remains ongoing. Selvin also reports that “many observers believe [the additional indictments] could involve William S. Lerach.” The federal court is expected to set a trial date on November 27.
