Real estate company says former lawyer stole $1 million from escrow account

While Crowell & Moring lawyers are still scratching their heads over the fact that one of their seemingly pleasant former associates stole millions from a client, the law firm has just been slapped with a third lawsuit tied to the thieving employee’s actions.

Real-estate company BCN 16th ST has filed suit against Crowell & Moring claiming the firm owes it more than $1 million in escrow money that Douglas Arntsen, a former associate at the firm, stole. In its suit, the company claims that the law firm failed to exercise proper control over its escrow account.
