Let's Give These Fellas a Hand!


It was a long, hard-fought road from spurious allegation to complete vindication, but that only makes the ending more sweet:
The Miccosukee tribe will pay $4 million to its former attorneys after targeting them in a series of failed lawsuits repeatedly rejected by courts as frivolous. 
The settlement is a significant victory for prominent Miami lawyers Guy Lewis and Michael Tein, who have long been mired in legal battles over their former representation of the Indian tribe, whose members live in several reservations in the Everglades.
The money goes toward settling legal costs the two incurred in fighting the lawsuits, which resulted in judges sanctioning the tribe and its former lawyer, Bernardo Roman III. A Florida Bar inquiry into Roman is also pending.
Well done all around, and hats off to the newly-shingled Paul Calli -- you boys take a victory lap, then back to work (it's Monday after all!).
