Next up on this week’s legal lions list are Goldstein & Russell and Montgomery McCracken Walker & Rhoads LLP. The U.S. Supreme Court said Monday that three Citgo units are financially responsible for a $133 million oil spill in Delaware caused by a sunken anchor that was hidden beneath the water’s surface at a port and pierced a tanker’s hull, relieving the financial burden of the spill from the firms’ client Frescati Shipping Co. Frescati is represented by Sarah E. Harrington, Thomas C. Goldstein and Erica Oleszczuk Evans of Goldstein & Russell, John J. Levy, Alfred J. Kuffler and Eugene J. O’Connor of Montgomery McCracken Walker & Rhoads LLP and Timothy J. Bergère of Armstrong Teasdale.
