Nataline, The Lawyer, and *The Other* Lawyer

Regular readers may recall a series of posts we did a decade or so ago about the tragic death of young Nataline Sarkisyan (folks interested in the backstory can find it here). Eventually, her distraught family hired a prominent legal beagle who sued the insurer (tangentially) involved.

Eventually, the story faded from public view, but co-blogger Mike just reminded me that we have a connection to the recent
Avenatti/Nike case: (alleged) unindicted co-conspirator Mark Geragos.

It was Mr G whom Nataline's parents hired to sue Cigna for "emotional distress:"

"It's a win-win for the lawyers and activists: regardless of whether she prevails, this has rekindled the controversy and gotten Mr Geragos and the "Americans for Change" folks free publicity."

Interesting coincidence.
