First Thing We Do….

You know, there is an old saying about a town being too small to have any amount of work for one lawyer, but big enough to keep TWO of them happily busy into the next millennium.

According to this article in the Houston Business Journal, lawyers are still busy sorting through the various claims wrought by Desert Storm, most significant among them, the environmental losses sustained by Kuwait.

The funds for the 1991 claims come from the UN sanctions against Iraq, and [Energy Panel member and retired Marathon Oil lawyer Larry] Wiese thinks it likely the sanctions will be discontinued after the regime change, which could leave the remaining claimants uncompensated.

Looks like the only people who benefit from this war, either way, are the lawyers.
