We had earlier reported that defense contractor, Blackwater, filed a legal malpractice case against its law firm for failing to properly remove the case to federal court, where Blackwater thought the wrongful death claims brought against it would be dismissed. Today, the Blog of Legal Times, reports that the legal malpractice claims were dismissed. The trial judge dismissed the claims arguing that the damages were too speculative. It’s a tough argument to assert that the federal judges would rule on an issue differently than the state judges, who let the wrongful death claims proceed. However, the case was dismissed without prejudice, so Blackwater could re-file the suit at a later date.
