Gipson Named Chief Ou Legal Counsel / by Regents


Driskill, Matt, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Fred Gipson, a Seminole attorney experienced in handling civil and criminal matters, has been named chief legal counsel at the University of Oklahoma.

Gipson, a 1960 OU law school alumnus, was appointed to the post by the OU Board of Regents during its June meeting. The appointment is effective July 1.

Gipson, who will be an executive officer of the university, has practiced law during the past 20 years in Washington, D.C., and Oklahoma City in addition to his hometown.

A member of the Oklahoma, District of Columbia and American bar associations, he is admitted to practice in all the state and federal courts in Oklahoma and in the federal courts in Washington, including the U.S. Supreme Court.

He has served as legal counsel for Seminole Junior College and counsel to the college's educational foundation and has taught law at Oklahoma City University.

He returned to Seminole in 1974 and has practiced law for more than a dozen years with the firm Gipson, Johnston & McMains. . .

- Attorney John Claro has been sanctioned by U.S. District Judge Layn Phillips for failing to produce certain documents that were needed and requested in discovery.

Claro says the documents were "three or four pages of doodles" that his client took when he visited one of the parties in the case.

The notes, he said, are "literally, unintelligible to anyone except to the client - they remind me of a bunch of drawings on the side of caves," and he didn't think they were requested in prior discovery requests, but he would "have given them voluntarily" if they had been requested.

This is the second time in less than a year that Claro has been sanctioned by Phillips, the first coming in October 1987 when Claro, along with most of the other attorneys involved in a related case, received sanctions from Phillips. The judge also ordered them to attend a seminar on practicing in the Western Judicial District of Oklahoma.

Phillips took note of the previous sanctions in his current order for Claro's "dilatory tactics on behalf of the same client" which he issued June 2.

Phillips ordered Claro to pay for expedited transcription costs, attorneys fees for a deposition and "stands reprimanded" for his actions, Phillips said. . .

- A permanent injunction has been issued against David Kahn, president of Robberson Steel and Bridge Co. prohibiting him from "encouraging, in writing or otherwise, the employees of Robberson. . .(to) picket" stockholders or RWR Steel Co.

The injunction was issued by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Richard Bohanon.

RWR Steel sold Robberson Steel to a partnership headed by Kahn.

Kahn admitted that he and several employees attempted to speak with Glenn Robberson, the former owner of Robberson, but said they did not trespass on his land or disrupt his activities by having television news crews accompany them.

Robberson Steel filed for Chapter 11 reorganization in April in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Oklahoma City.

Kahn said recently in court papers that while RWR Steel sold the assets to his partnership, RWR in reality, was acting as a co-joint venturer and exercised some degree of day-to-day control over the company. …
