Crockett & Myers v. Napier (9th Cir. - Oct. 21, 2009)

There's a value to a referral to another attorney. That's self-evident. Lawyers will pay for a referral of a good case.

Admittedly, this was a good case in which to so hold. Moreover, the case is ostensibly limited to so holding under Nevada law -- though Judge Nelson's opinion isn't based on any peculiar content of that legal system and will likely be seen as extending more broadly.

So this is a very good holding for attorneys who do referrals. Yet more money for doing very little work.
