"Asbestos defendant seeks $1M in legal fees in fraud case"



Federal district court judge David Bramlette seems potentially receptive to the request (he's asked for detailed billing records rather than simply deny the request out of hand), but if it's denied, it means that the defendant will come out behind for challenging the lawyers who effectively stole over $200 thousand in settlement money by failing to disclose their clients' double-dipping, even after punitive damages.
