25 May 2016Lexology
Imagine that your client has filed a straightforward motion that is critical to its position. Then imagine that the judge hearing the motion is involved in personal litigation where he is facing the same issue and arguing exactly what your opponent is arguing. Then imagine that the judge has not bothered to disclose the fact of that litigation or the underlying circumstances that constitute a serious conflict of interest. That very circumstance is what was facing Hogan Lovells’ client, New York Marine and General Insurance Company.
