A brawl is raging in Texas among some of the richest plaintiffs lawyers in the United States: John O'Quinn, bloodied and bowed after convictions for drunk driving and practicing without a license; Joseph Jamail, called the "King of Torts" by Newsweek; and veteran litigator Ronald Krist, who essentially is acting as Jamail's corner man. The three men, who have been fighting for years, are scrapping over legal fees won by O'Quinn in a $2 billion settlement in a breast implant class action.
