CHICAGO -- A Detroit law firm filed an appeal this week with the Michigan Court of Appeals in an attempt to overturn a lower court decision that found the firm liable in a legal malpractice case involving a bond issue.

Lawyers for Miller, Canfield, Paddock & Stone and for the Pontiac School District, which filed the lawsuit, also presented arguments yesterday before an Oakland County Circuit Court judge over how much of the $25.6 million plus interest award in the case would be posted as bond by the law firm pending the outcome of the appeal.
