Rambus: Something Smells in Virginia

Evidently, McGuire Woods, a very influential Virginia law firm, was hired by Siemens (former parent company of Infineon). Intriguingly, Honorable Judge Robert Payne was a partner of McGuire Woods for 21 years.

Can you say Conflict of Interest?

Even more intriguing, German police recently raided 30 offices of Siemens as well as homes belonging to some of its top managers in a massive embezzlement investigation. Rumors are now circulating about whether Siemens overpaid for property owned by Judge Payne. Goodness, why would Siemens buy property from Judge Payne well above the market price?

How about this:

Infineon litigation, well documented on the web, where Judge Payne iswidely denounced as a bribed, corrupt "on the take Jake". Infineonhired as their lawyers, Judge Payne's "good ol' boy" friends at theRichmond, Virginia law firm of McGuire Woods, where Judge Paynehimself worked from 1971 to 1992, and where Judge Payne maintains tiesand friendships. Judge Payne's conduct in this case is pure farce,issuing multiple absurd rulings against Rambus that are regularlyoverturned. --Excerpt from a letter sent to the Judicial Conduct and Disability Act Study Committee"Rehnquist Judicial Ethics Panel.
