Whaddya Get When You Throw A Dozen Lawyers At $2 Million?
You might remember the headlines back in May about some unsavory accusations against the Dallas Mexican Consulate -- the ones that dubbed the place "a lawless world where rules do not exist, where corruption, ethical violations, bribery and kickbacks reign supreme?"

It all started back in 2006, when a bereaved woman arrived at the consulate after the father of her four children was killed in a job-site accident. In 2008 she agreed to a $5 million settlement from the companies involved, and three years later, what Judge Bruce Priddy has called a "rather messy case" drags on, pitting prominent lawyers against one another, prompting accusations of mob-style assaults and raising ethical questions about the consulate's practices regarding attorney referrals.
