Wone Family Lawyers Up, Again. Big Time.

What Does Patrick Regan’s Add Mean for the Civil Case?

As reported late Wednesday by Mike Scarcella in the Blog of Legal Times,  veteran plaintiffs attorney and wrongful deaths expert Patrick Regan has now signed on with the Wone team.

Regan’s involvement comes just in time for next week’s February 27 D.C. Superior Court status hearing on the motions filed on behalf of Price, Zaborsky and Ward to stay the civil case.   His addition adds considerable throw-weight and muscle to the already robust Covington & Burling team,  helmed by Ben Razi.  Clearly the Wone family is readying a squadron of legal eagles for what may be the courthouse equivalent of shock and awe.

The BLT’s Courts Reporter Mike “The Machine” Scarcella continues to do great writing and without his indefatigable work, coverage of the Wone case wouldn’t be nearly as comprehensive as it is.  The Politico has its Mike Allen, the workhorse with the source;  the Legal Times has its Mike Scarcella.   We are as grateful as we are impressed by his talents.

    I wonder if y’all have any sense of how the legal team will deal with the statute of limitations, which the Washington City Paper observed is one year for wrongful death suits.

    Well, there’s no statute on murder. Concealment of the wrongdoing often extends the date that the statute begins to run (defendant shouldn’t profit from his own wrongdoing, etc.) Something of a contractual nature (as guests) might have a longer statute. All sorts of possibilities.

    Just wondering here — do we know if the attorneys representing the Wone family are providing their services pro bono?

    That’s what the BLT reported.
