The SEC has managed to unite law firms to protest its treatment of cybercrime victims

Eighty-three American law firms, employing more than 50,000 attorneys, have filed an official protest backing some of their peers working on an SEC lawsuit. 

In the brief, the complainants urged the court to reign in the SEC, claiming its current demands put their associates at law firm Covington & Burling in a lose-lose situation and set a dangerous precedent for the future.
