Crowell & Moring hit with an ethics complaint over a controversial client memo


Jason Huber filed the complaint against four Crowell lawyers with the Office of Bar Counsel in Washington, D.C. Crowell posted a three-page critique of a study conducted by West Virginia University and Washington State University researchers on its Web site in the form of a client memo. Crowell lawyers criticized the study's methodology, arguing that it had hit unrelated birth defects along with discounting similar incidence rates in unaffected areas. The critics also stated the study to have failed to account for consanguinity, one of the most prominent sources of birth defects. Crowell alleges Huber is misguided in seeking sanctions against its lawyers over critics that was not meant to offend anyone, was quickly removed, and for which the firm has apologized.
