Two Texas lawyers who are married to each other face a trial on theft charges based on allegations the wife had liaisons with four men whom the husband later threatened with litigation unless they compensated him for emotional distress. The couple's attorney says the case's outcome could impact every civil lawyer in the state who writes demand letters. Responds an assistant district attorney: "If we thought this was something that all lawyers do, they wouldn't have been charged."
