Darryl Laddin on Front Page of Daily Report

On September 11, 2009, AGG Partner Darryl Laddin appeared in the front page article of the Daily Report, “PoGo Dragged Back Into Fight.” In a recent ruling, U.S. District Judge Robert B. Propst of the Northern District of Alabama reinstated claims brought by Mr. Laddin, as bankruptcy trustee for Verilink, Inc., the Alabama-based telecommunications parts maker, against Verlink’s former counsel Powell Goldstein Frazer & Murphy LLP.  The trustee’s claims, which were previously dismissed by Bankruptcy Judge Jack Caddell, challenge legal services provided by Powell Goldstein to Verilink prior to its bankruptcy filing in connection with its acquisition of Larscom Inc, a producer of high-speed network access equipment. A related article titled, “Ex-Client’s Bankruptcy Trustee Seeks $25M from Former Powell Goldstein Lawyers,” was recently published in the ABA Journal on September 14.
