DC Comics hires big gun in Siegel suit
Newsarama is reporting that DC Comics has replaced their “local outside counsel with Los Angeles “Super Lawyer” Daniel Petrocelli.”
Time Warner’s decision to bring on such a high-profile litigator as its new outside counsel would seem to signal that the company does not expect a settlement with the Siegel family in the foreseeable future. It’s equally possible that the hire is itself a negotiation tactic, as it’s not unusual for a party in a lawsuit to bring in big name counsel in an attempt to intimidate a seemingly intractable opponent.
