Caperton Saga Leaves 15-Year Imprint on Reed Smith Duo

, The Legal Intelligencer


While Fawcett is careful to formulate just the right words before speaking, before he could even hear the whole question of whether he would take on this case again, his answer: "Oh hell yes."

"In certain ways I probably could have made more money focusing on other things, but the chance to work on something like this, that's gold. That's what you live for as a lawyer," he said.

On this question, Stanley became the more cautious of the pair. "I want to say yes," he said. He said he doesn't think there is scar tissue from the case, but admitted it was tiring. But after a bit of a breather and a win from the Virginia Supreme Court, the team is excited and anxious again to get back into court.

Stanley said the Massey team may have been hoping over the years that time would kill their drive and the case.

"That's one of the things we're most proud of," Stanley said. "Time hasn't gotten rid of us yet."

The Price of Justice comes out Tuesday. Reed Smith is holding a reception and discussion with Leamer next week in its Pittsburgh office.
