N.Y. lawyer arrested in Canada (PHINJO GOMBU, 3/03/06, Toronto Star)

A New York attorney specializing in tax law, under investigation by a U.S. grand jury for renting two underage girls from their mother for sex, was arrested on an immigration warrant last week in Grimsby by Niagara Region police but then released.

James Colliton, 42, formerly with top-shelf law firm Cravath, Swaine & Moore in New York City, was picked up last Friday by local police, the Toronto Fugitive Squad and immigration officials, Niagara Regional Police Detective Sergeant Bob Jackson said yesterday.

But because it was an immigration matter involving him being unlawfully in the country, he was taken into the custody of Canadian immigration officials.

Cravath, Swaine and Moore has now edged out the firm of Wee, Cheatum, and Howe for the greatest law firm name ever.
