Texas attorney Dustin Kolodziej is once again suing Florida criminal defense lawyer James Cheney Mason and his firm for breach of contract over a challenge that Mason allegedly issued on “Dateline NBC” in December 2006.

Kolodziej alleges in his original complaint in Kolodziej v. Mason, et al., filed June 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, that the suit arises out of Mason’s representation of Nelson Serrano, who was convicted and sentenced to death for the 1997 murders of four people in Central Florida. As alleged in Kolodziej’s complaint, security cameras at the La Quinta Inn in Atlanta showed Serrano at the hotel within a few hours after the murders.
