Joining Pro Say this week is Chicago court reporter Celeste Bott to break down the Prairie State’s high court ruling and what it could mean for workplace tracking disputes. Also this week, two plaintiffs’ firms trade blows over a Facebook antitrust case, and the DOJ files charges against an ex-con for his purported impersonation of a private equity GC and BigLaw pro. Finally, the hosts examine the tortured legal connections of this week’s most anticipated movie release, “Cocaine Bear.”
