US Sen. hopeful Warren releases list of legal work

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has released more information on legal work she performed during her career as a law professor.

Her campaign sent out the detailed list just moments before Monday's second televised debate between Warren and Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown.

The campaign listed six cases Warren worked on that went before the United States Supreme Court, four that went before the United States Court of Appeals and three that went before the United States Bankruptcy Court.

Brown has criticized Warren's work on behalf of LTV Steel and Travelers Insurance, which he said runs counter to her image as a fighter for the middle class.

In a letter to Brown, Warren's campaign manager Mindy Myers says Warren's record shows she worked to uphold principles of bankruptcy law that protect workers, retirees, victims, and consumers.

Myers pointed to a 2005 case where she said Warren represented the AARP in its effort "to protect retirement accounts from banks and other creditors who wanted to try to take them away from people who have gone broke."

Myers said the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Warren's position.

The campaign used the letter to demand more detailed information from Brown about his legal work and "any specific legal matters you have worked on."

During the debate, Brown against described himself as a real estate attorney who specialized in home closings and worked with smaller banks and mortgage companies.

Brown manager Jim Barnett faulted what he called "Warren's utter inability to defend her work on behalf of LTV Steel in its effort to dodge responsibility for paying promised health care benefits to its retired workers."
