The litigation in New York over the compensation of ex-NYSE chief Grasso is a classic example of what money-is-no-object defense lawyers can do to the litigation process. The defense lawyers are paid to explore every defense, make every motion, take every edge in the litigation. It puts very, very heavy pressure on the state court judge hearing the case (who, buy the way, having decided a few motions against Grasso now finds himself the subject of the motions for recusal.) Those who are interested in the litigation process, and the effect of wealth on the process, should be following this case, blow by blow. It will be an education.
