The American Center for Civil Justice hired Baltimore lawyer Joshua Ambush to file a wrongful death and personal injury suit against Libya over a 1972 terrorist attack at Tel Aviv, Israel’s Lod Airport that killed 26 people.

But when it came time to dole out $65 million in settlement money, the two had different ideas about who should get the legal fees. Ambush said he’s owed $2 million for staying with a case that the center had abandoned. Lawyers for the center claim that Ambush had already been “fully paid” for his time on an hourly arrangement.
