Former Justice Bob Brown to associate with Friday firm

Posted By on Mon, Apr 22, 2013 at 11:19 AM

Talk Business reports that retired Arkansas Supreme Court Justice Robert Brown is taking an "of counsel" role with the powerful Friday Law Firm.

“It is a great opportunity for me to be Of Counsel with this quality law firm,” Justice Brown said. “It is a perfect way for me to work at my own pace and share my experience with the firm, its associates, and its interns. I look forward to the transition. Any appeal that was before the Supreme Court while I was a justice will be off limits for me in my new role at the firm, and I will not be involved” he added.

Among others, the Friday Firm was at the forefront of the fight this session to amend the Constitution to reverse Supreme Court decisions that set back business lobby laws intend to make damage lawsuits harder to win. That tort reform amendment effort failed in the face of opposition from both plaintiffs' lawyers and the Arkansas Bar Association.
