Michael E. McCabe, Jr. was quoted by The American Lawyer Daily Business Review on May 24, 2017, in an article entitled “Greenberg Traurig Agrees to Withdraw from Case in Which it was Faced with Conflict of Interest” (by Monika Gonzalez Mesa) (sub req’d).  The article quotes IPethics & INsights, which first broke the story in our May 22 post here.  As we previously reported, Greenberg had filed a counterclaim attacking the validity of two patents, but Greenberg attorneys had filed the provisional application to which both allegedly invalid patents claimed priority.  The former client sought Greenberg’s disqualification from the lawsuit.  Before the DQ motion could be decided, the law firm voluntarily agreed to withdraw from the case, and the court denied the DQ motion as moot.
