Robert E. Coughlin II E-mail

Hmm.....

A lawyer gets in trouble for conflict of interest...

This lawyer worked at the DOJ ...

The government lawyer: Robert E. Coughlin II pleads guilty ...

Coughlin was receiving bribes from a Biglaw firm which specializes in Bankruptcy Law ...

This same law firm received an extraordinary cash bonus authorized by a certain bankrupty Judge who "coincidentally" has a checkered history when it comes to bankruptcy misconduct. In fact, this bankruptcy judge (also a government lawyer) has his own documents section here on Bankruptcy Misconduct's free downloads section.

 

OK, everybody join our comment forum and guess the name of the dirty BigLaw firm, and what their punishment was.

No fair "guessing" the bankruptcy judge, you could just click on the links highlighted above.

One might guess that the lawyers of the BigLaw bankruptcy law firm suffered the consequence of incarceration, disbarment, fines, investigation by a federal special prosecutor, mandatory counseling, continuing education referrals, reprimand, warning, inquiry letter, and nothing.

To be clear, the guess itself was not a blank stare, the guess was that there was absolutely no recourse to the law firm which paid the bribe.

What is your guess? If Martha Stewart goes to prison for correcting, by her own volition, her preliminary answers to government investigators ... What is the recourse to a bankruptcy law firm in a case of proven and admitted bribery of a DOJ official?
