Prominent L.A. attorney shot outside upscale home

December 9, 2009 Jeffrey Tidus, an attorney with downtown Los Angeles business litigation boutique Baute and Tidus, died Tuesday after being shot in the head outside his home in the exclusive community of Rolling Hills Estates.

"There are certain factors about it that indicate it could be a targeted killing, we haven't ruled anything out" said the police.

Tidus had been an attorney for 30 years. A graduate of the Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California at Berkeley, he focused on complex civil litigation including insurance coverage, securities fraud and financial institutions cases.
