Washington Post: Legal briefs: Accusations fly over U.S. Chamber of Commerce tactics


February 28, 2011- One of the groups targeted by the law firm Hunton & Williams in an effort to discredit critics of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has made good on its threat to file a disciplinary complaint with the District of Columbia Bar.

Kevin Zeese, an attorney with StopTheChamber.com, on Wednesday, Feb. 23, sent a 14-page letter to the Office of Bar Counsel that accuses Hunton & Williams attorneys John W. Woods, Richard L. Wyatt and Robert T. Quackenboss of hiring contractors to engage in "domestic spying, fraud, forgery, extortion, cyber stalking, defamation, harassment" and other tactics to quell criticism of the firm's client, the Chamber of Commerce. All attorneys practice here in the District.

"It's kind of amazing a firm like Hunton & Williams would talk about violations of cyber law, forgery, blackmail, libel, slander . . . these lawyers need to be appropriately disciplined for that," Zeese said in an interview.
