NEW ORLEANS – Texas investors who for years have accused Proskauer Rose LLP of nurturing the $7.2 billion Robert Allen Stanford Ponzi scheme, appealed their case five days after it was dismissed by a federal judge who said the firm was entitled to attorney immunity.
Lead plaintiffs Sandra Dorrell and Philip Wilkinson filed their appeal Nov. 7 in the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
The appeal followed quickly on the heels of the case’s dismissal the previous Thursday, Nov. 2, in the Dallas Division of the Northern District of Texas, which rejected plaintiffs’ arguments that attorney immunity should not apply in their case against Proskauer Rose.
