Description: George Locker is a New York City attorney who is claiming a contingency fee from the defendants for legal work which involved a defendant in a California lawsuit. The California suit was successful. Defendants are asserting Mr. Locker did not represent them, and that he provided no legal services to them. Defendants have filed a motion for summary judgment against the lawyer. The NY judge ruled that the lawyer could not collect a contingency fee but might be eligible for a fee for time in the case for preparatory work done in NYS.
