Below is an excerpt from the staff bio page posted on Gordon Thomas Honeywellâs Web site as of January 2008. Notice that Lisa Hurstâs bio says she worked on the firmâs NIJ-funded study that was "used as the underpinningsâ of the Justice For All Act of 2004. We found this version by checking archive.org.
Below is an excerpt from the staff bio page posted on Gordon Thomas Honeywellâs Web site as of May 4, 2009.Notice that Lisa Hurstâs bio no longer mentions that she worked on the firmâs NIJ-funded study that was "used as the underpinningsâ of the Justice For All Act of 2004. ProPublica first noticed the change in September 2008, after we started looking into the firm.
In an e-mail to us, Tim Schellberg, Gordon Thomas Honeywellâs president, explained the switch: âWe have been in the process of changing our web site for the last few months to match the legal side of the firm. As part of this, we made our bios shorter. Also, we are redoing how we list our clients. We hope to make the final transition of the web site to match the law firm side of the firm soon.â
