Levinson Axelrod has sued fired associate Edward Heyburn in an effort to shut down his online gripe site, "Levinson Axelrod Sucks." Heyburn removed the case, which includes a claim that he violated federal anticybersquatting law, to federal court in New Jersey. The complaint notes that Heyburn "goes so far as to criticize the physical appearance" of firm attorneys, such as "the 1970's porno mustaches." The firm did not sue for defamation, which Heyburn calls a "concession that everything I said is true."
