The Curmudgeon's old boss, David Bernick, has been defending W.R. Grace and a number of executives in a federal criminal trial for the past two and half months, arising out of operation of an asbestos mine in Libby, Montana.
Today, the Montana jury acquitted Grace and the executives. See "Jury Acquits W.R. Grace, Three Execs In Asbestos Case."
We're not surprised. Bernick is an amazing trial attorney, and his team included some superb lawyers and staff we've worked with before.
Still, we're just as happy to be home peddling our book, playing a bit of golf and hanging out in the blogosphere.
