Conflict of interest ousts Seattle lawfirm from E. coli case

The National Law Journal (2/8, Jones) reports, “A prominent Seattle law firm that represents plaintiffs in food-borne illness cases has been ousted from a Colorado E. coli lawsuit because of a conflict.” The Colorado Supreme Court on February 4 “disqualified attorneys at Marler Clark from representing the family of a girl who alleged that she was made sick by a salad she ate at a restaurant in Pueblo, Colo. The en banc ruling, over two dissenting votes, denied Marler Clark temporary admission to the Colorado court system because one of its associates had spoken with defense counsel about the case before Marler Clark began representing the family.”
