Pay Up: A federal judge for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida last week held two lawyers in contempt and ordered them to return $275,000 in fees they took from a client's family, the Sun Sentinel reports. Lawyers Peter Mayas and Emmanuel Roy, who weren't eligible to practice law in South Florida’s federal court, had secret deals with the members of client Patrick Coulton's family, obtaining tens of thousands of dollars through the acquisition of jewelry, a townhouse, a Porsche Cayenne and cash. "Their conduct was outrageous, disgusting, abhorrent,” U.S. Magistrate Judge William Turnoff wrote. “[I] would go so far as to describe it as being the most outrageous in … 25 years on the bench.”
