Civil law. Gotta love it. Cases do not die. They just get appealed and re-litigated.
Just when you thought the Miccosukee/Lewis Tein contretemps was over, comes your friendly neighborhood 3rd DCA, reversing the order of the trial court which denied attorneys fees.
So now L&T, which no longer exists, is on the hook for much wampum.
Note that L&T bringing in the big guns at Colson Hicks did little to save the day on appeal.
