A company that advanced an Atlanta lawyer and his firm $25,000 for a portion of potential payouts from a sheaf of cases says that it never got its money nor interest payments topping 100 percent annually.

Lawsuit Financial Inc. of Southfield, Mich., sued Earl A. Davidson and his firm, Giddens, Davidson & Mitchell, in Fulton County Superior Court earlier this month to collect its $25,000 and many times that sum in fees and interest.
