Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom LLP is again facing scrutiny over its links to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. The elite BigLaw firm has long denied any wrongdoing over its involvement in his shady lobbying for pro-Russian figures, but the plea deal Manafort struck with prosecutors last week seemed to contradict some of those claims. Law360 senior reporter Andrew Strickler, who has been following the Skadden story for months, joins us to break it all down. Also on this week's show, a recap of the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh; a disturbing gender discrimination case leveled against the firm of Manatt Phelps; and Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s entertaining chat with children at the Brooklyn Public Library.
