In an attorney-discipline action stemming from a legal family feud between the sons of the late jeweler Harry Winston, the Florida Supreme Court has suspended a lawyer for 90 days for his part in compensating a consultant who later became a fact witness. The lawyer's co-counsel, New York attorneys David Boies and Robert Silver, escaped discipline, since New York allows the compensation arrangement that was in dispute.
