The nasty fight between Hollywood lawyer/celeb wedding presider Barry L. Hirsch and his ex-partners made today's New York Times. The piece by Ross Johnson details the hurt feelings, mean words and dueling lawsuits separating Hirsch's new firm (Hirsch Wallerstein Hayum Matlof & Fishman) and the firm he helped found and was apparently squeezed out of (now Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum & Morris) back in August. Nikki Finke has chronicled the bitter split and its impact on several A-list clients in the LA Weekly.
