Maybe money can't buy happiness after all. Just ask the lawyers who once practiced together at Charleston, S.C.'s Ness Motley Loadholdt Richardson & Poole. The plaintiffs' firm went up against Big Tobacco, securing a $246 billion settlement for the states and scoring some $3 billion in fees. But now warring factions are splitting off, slinging words, and even suing the firm for their share of its flashiest asset: a deluxe Falcon 50 private jet.
