A dismissal motion filed last week by a former partner with Milberg Weiss & Bershad picks up on concerns raised by a trial judge.

Steven Schulman argues for dismissal of charges that he paid kickbacks to class-action clients because no one involved in the suits suffered any harm. Schulman has been charged along with another partner and the law firm.

Laurie Levenson, a professor at Loyola Law School, told the Los Angeles Times that Schulman’s motion is not a slam-dunk. But "if you have a judge expressing skepticism, that helps the defense," she said.
