Another Client Close to Firing Boies After Weinstein Revelations
Now even a pro bono client feels compelled to fire David Boies after revelations of the famed litigator’s role in attempting to hide Harvey Weinstein’s alleged history of sexual harassment and assault.
The Tampa Bay Times reports that the City of St. Petersburg, Florida, is heading toward ending its relationship with Boies.
Charlie Frago writes that Boies and his firm Boies Schiller Flexner had offered their services to the city in a challenge to Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission, the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that removed restrictions on how much outside groups can spend on elections.
One city council member reacted to the revelations of Boies’ actions: “I find this reprehensible and will absolutely NOT vote to accept Boies’ offer to represent the city of St. Petersburg pro bono on the campaign finance issue.”
