Ruling: Siegel Family Attorney Marc Toberoff Off The Hook For Half-Million Legal Fees To DC has the most succinct write-up on a key decision in terms of sorting out remaining issues involved with the last several years of litigation between the heirs of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and DC Comics. Any comment I can formulate in my head seems a re-iteration of what's in the piece more than anything additional I might say: I would imagine it's a relief to Toberoff to not have to pay that bill, although that's not exactly an award-winning insight. I suppose one could make an argument on one side or another of the way such decisions either discourage or fail to discourage attorneys pursuing these kinds of cases more generally, but I'm not even certain that's a cogent or reasonable thing to get into.
