The top story this morning is Kentucky firm Stoll Keenon Ogden opening a Western Pennsylvania office with a focus on oil and gas. As reporter Zack Needles writes, the office will be in the Southpointe business park in Washington County, Pa., led by member David H. Thomason, who has more than 45 years of experience in mineral law.
Also above the fold on Page 1, reporter Gina Passarella writes that a Philadelphia judge has found the Lundy Law firm breached its contract with a referring attorney over a referral fee, but the judge’s order has left unresolved how the fee will be awarded given several firms won the damages and only one signed the fee agreement.
Below the fold on Page 1, reporter Saranac Hale Spencer writes that the Third Circuit has tossed Tinicum Township’s claims against the expansion of Philadelphia’s airport.
In an Employment Law column on Page 5, Sid Steinberg writes that the use of dated bases for termination has been upheld in an age bias case.
This week’s GC Mid-Atlantic column is on Page 7, as James A. Matthews III writes the final part in a series on the attorney-client privilege within the client organization.
