Monday brought more developments about troubled law firm Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP. Both Above the Law and AmLaw reported that there were a few moving trucks in front of the Dewey HQ. Dewey is also believed to have told its legal staff on Friday that they were being laid off and next Friday (May 11) would be their last day.
