Household Terminations Can Become Sticky

Household Terminations Can Become Sticky

Thanks for clicking through to learn more about this interesting case.

One of the aspects of this case that I found fascinating has nothing to do with the law. In fact, it’s more People magazine than legal analysis. The Schillers were represented in this case by the nationally-renown firm of Boies Schiller Flexner. Of course, David Boies is a household name, dating back to his days defending CBS in the defamation suit brought by General William Westmoreland, his victory over Microsoft in an anti-trust trial in which Boies represented the U.S. Government, his unsuccessful representation of Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore in Bush v. Gore, and countless other high-profile cases. Boies’s long-time friend and partner, Jonathan Schiller, is the father of Zachary Schiller who, according to Wikipedia, is a film producer whose production credits include: the Escape Plan series, Midnight Sun, The Babysitter, and Countdown. Jonathan Schiller’s other son, Joshua, is married to Melissa Siebel Schiller, sister of Jennifer Siebel Newsom, California Governor Gavin Newsom’s wife.

So, maybe the Schillers got the family discount to be represented by this legendary law firm in a dispute with their nanny.
