Leeds Morelli & Brown Fight Accusations of Accepting Bribes

A group of former employees from Prudential Life Insurance are alleging that the firm hired to represent them against their employer took bribes so that they would lose the case.

Gerald Harper, a partner at Paul Weiss, is defending Prudential, who is accused of bribing the legal team. The plaintiffs have just requested to see 37,000 privileged documents that they say will prove their case. The firm representing the employees has asked that documents be turned over without court approval. Harper responded to this by saying, ''No court in the history of [New Jersey] has ever done what the plaintiffs are asking this court to do.''

Prudential is accused of providing a back end deal in which Leeds would receive $5 million up-front for throwing the case, which settled for $15 million in 2001.
