Juroviesky and Ricci LLP - Nortel Announcement

    TORONTO, May 28 /CNW/ - On May 20, 2009 the Honourable Justice Morawetz
ruled on the Motions to Appoint Representative Counsel for the Canadian Nortel
Terminated Employees which were heard in Toronto on April 20-21, 2009. While
we argued vigorously to obtain a representation order on your behalf, Justice
Morawetz appointed Koskie Minsky LLP as the sole representative counsel for
all current, former and terminated Canadian Nortel Employees. We anticipate
receiving Justice Morawetz's reasons for his decision on May 26, 2009 and we
will provide a link to those reasons on our website when we receive them.
    We are disappointed in Justice Morawetz's decision not to grant the
Nortel Terminated Canadian Employees a separate representation order. However,
given the court's decision and pursuant to the terms of its Retainer
Agreement, Juroviesky and Ricci LLP has terminated its relationship with the
Steering Committee for the Nortel Terminated Canadian Employees and has
informed its its former clients that Koskie Minsky LLP is available to
represent them in the Nortel CCAA proceedings. A formal letter of
disengagement has been emailed to all the terminated Nortel employees that
retained Juroviesky and Ricci advising them of these events and notifying them
that Juroviesky and Ricci LLP will no longer be representing them in the
Nortel CCAA proceedings. Similarly, we have notified counsel for the Monitor
that we will no longer be representing any party in these proceedings.
    Juroviesky and Ricci LLP would like to thank all those individuals that
found merit in our strategies and chose to retain us to represent them in
these proceedings.
