From what I read, she switched legal teams to one of the top labor firms in the country. The statement was that her old legal team didn't have the breadth of experience to handle her situation. So me thinks they either thought this would go away easily, or that it wasn't a terribly difficult case. The issue is with everything that has come out and happened since, now there is this big assumption out there in the employee's favor. So now the case is not so easily win-able, and now she apparently needs the "big guns". MOO.
