A blockbuster filing in the Lewis Tein state court case accuses Miccosukee Tribal lawyers of committing fraud on the Court.
The filing attaches two documents that appear to support Lewis Tein's account of the financial arrangement between them and their clients -- that the monies provided by the Tribe were merely advances or loans that the clients were obligated to repay.
The first document appears to be an internal Tribe account statement reflecting monies advanced or loaned by the Tribe to the clients.
The second consists of minutes of Tribal general council meetings in which the clients request advances or loans so they can pay Lewis Tein's legal fees.
The motion asks the Court to issue a show cause order holding the Tribe's attorneys in contempt, as well as a referral to the Florida Bar for numerous violations of the Bar rules and for "direct and knowing fraud on the Court."
