consolidated the 18 lawsuits filed so far against VA Linux and
Credit Suisse and tentatively named Milberg Weiss as lead counsel
on the case. Melvyn Weiss, the firm's co-founder and known as the

largest fees of all the law firms involved...."
"Previously, Milberg Weiss helped bring some high-profile fraud
cases, including the $800 million award the firm won in litigation
involving Michael Milken. In the past couple of years, Weiss and
his firm played a role in negotiating a billion-dollar settlement
for survivors of the Nazi Holocaust."
