Law360, Kirkland Booted From For-Profit Law School's ABA Suit:
An Arizona federal judge overseeing a suit by a for-profit law school against the American Bar Association has removed from the case three Kirkland & Ellis attorneys representing the school, including former U.S. Solicitor General Paul D. Clement, saying they have not complied with out-of-state attorney admission procedures.
In a text order Monday the judge noted that Arizona Summit Law School is still represented by local counsel and removed Clement, Viet D. Dinh and H. Christopher Bartolomucci from the case.
Nicole Stanton, an Arizona-based attorney for Arizona Summit, told Law360 that the Kirkland & Ellis attorneys are in the process of obtaining the certificate of good standing and other information the state requires to admit an attorney pro hac vice.
