Jackie Chiles

We keep hearing comparisons of  Stephen A. Smith's flashy new lawyer Willie Gary to Jackie Chiles, the attorney from "Seinfeld," of course based on the late Johnnie Cochran. We reported last week that ESPN's Smith, whose Inqwaster column was yanked in August, and who hasn't written for the paper since, had added Gary, a prominent litigator to his ever-growing legal team, representing him in his dispute with the paper.. Inky editor Bill Marimow declined comment when asked if Smith was still an employee and Smith did not return our requests for comment.
