The Florida state Bar has filed an ethics complaint against famed Microsoft litigator David Boies, alleging that he violated its rules by paying more than $400,000 in legal fees for a client his firm is representing in a Palm Beach County contract dispute. Boies, who represented Al Gore in the 2000 presidential election recount battle, is charged with representing the affluent client for free as well as paying fees to other law firms who worked on her case.
