"His view, and he says himself it was a toss-up, was that we were not authorized to prepare for trial," Bailey said. "We disagree because I got verbal authorization to do the work I needed to do to win the case."
Bruce Lederman, of D'Agostino, Levine, Landesman & Lederman, represents the co-op.
"I think it was a well-written decision by the judge who listened carefully to the evidence and reached a thoughtful decision," he said. "The decision recognizes that attorneys have a duty to keep in mind what's involved in a case before pursuing a no-expense-spared approach before trial."
