Scott Walker and associates to Texas attorneys: Pay up
Coast businessmen Scott Walker, Kirk Ladner and Steve Seymour, who is also a Hancock County supervisor, allege in a federal lawsuit two Texas attorneys owe them almost $7.9 million for bringing aboard thousands of clients who wanted to resolve BP claims.
In an unrelated public corruption cases, a federal judge recently sentenced Walker to 18 months in prison for committing conspiracy and fraud. The judge ordered him to pay $390,000 in restitution, but no court fine because Walker didn't have the money. Walker told the judge he was losing the family's home, which has been on the market for months. The waterfront brick home with guest house in Ocean Springs, where Walker and his family still live, is listed for $1.2 million.
