$180 Million Legal Malpractice Lawsuit Against DLA Piper Dismissed Due to Late Filing

DLA Piper has walked away from $180m worth of legal malpractice charges unscathed thanks to U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero ruling that very little merit was attached to plaintiff Link Motion's case.

The judge agreed with DLA Piper on all points brought into question by the Chinese software company, including the statute of limitations expiration date of January 2022.

Although there were questionable practices at play (involving unauthorized asset transfers and nondisclosure), dating back to allegations made within a shareholder lawsuit against Link Motion from 2018 leading up to receivership for them etc, the plaintiff felt they could still sue DLA without giving up on claiming there was no opportunity provided by them to defend against these impropriety claims according to Michael Maloney representing Link motion via email following judgment day and disagreeing with Judge Marrero’s summary conclusion about the adequacy of pleading matters.

In contrast, Kevin Rosen, a partner at Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, who represented DLA Piper expressed his pleasure with the outcome of this case dismissing all claims as "baseless." The data and crucial elements have been preserved in conformity with ethical writing principles.

DLA Piper was successful in getting permission to withdraw from the case, 4 months later. This success came due to Link Motion's inability to pay the legal fee on time and because Link Motion was not really active in the case. 

As of now, DLA Piper has defeated the lawsuit that would've proven to be disastrous for the firm. 180 million dollars is a huge amount and avoiding such a high-profile case is an achievement itself for DLA Piper. For now, the firm is safe from any legal trouble but the allegations still remain in the air.
