Chess worked at BAR/BRI until 1995.
2. Kaplan signed the letter of intent to purchase the assets of West Bar Review much earlier than one month after Chess left West Publishing. Stan Chess, now president of LawTV Inc., which operates Web sites such as www.LawSchool.com, is the fourth objector to a $49 million settlement filed with the courts on Feb. 2. Ryan Rodriguez v. West Publishing Corp. , No. 05cv3222 (C.D. Calif.). Three named plaintiffs also have raised objections. In court papers filed last month, Chess called the settlement "grossly inadequate. "It doesn't accomplish anything," he said, noting that "the amount of money is not consequential to the defendant or the class members. There aren't that many attorneys who will fill out forms for $125." Chess is the latest to object to the settlement. Chess, who worked for BAR/BRI until 1994, told The National Law Journal that he was laid off as chairman and chief executive of West Publishing's West Bar Review in July 1997, about one month before Kaplan signed a letter of intent to buy West Bar Review from The Thomson Corp., parent company of West Publishing. The deal fell through. Chess said he was told by a Kaplan employee afterward that BAR/BRI had struck a deal with Kaplan to stay out of the bar review business.
