Why Did a Bankster Defense Attorney Represent JSTOR?

theodp (442580) writes "Mary Jo White, the White House nominee tapped to head the SEC, appears before a Senate committee for her confirmation hearing on Tuesday. White, the Washington Post notes, built a lucrative career representing high-profile clients (pdf) such as JPMorgan Chase, UBS AG and Morgan Stanley. Kenneth Lewis, BofA’s former CEO, and Rajat Gupta, the former Goldman Sachs board member convicted of insider trading, were also clients. So, as long as White is expected to face questioning, why not ask a few about how the "bankster" super lawyer came to represent JSTOR — and by extension the late Aaron Swartz — in failed negotiations with U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz's office to drop the DOJ's prosecution of Swartz? After all, the Senate is also busy at work trying to shed light on the Swartz case. Monday, by the way, marks the two-month anniversary of Swartz's tragic suicide; still waiting for that report from MIT."
