A Jones County, Mississippi jury returned a massive $103 million-dollar legal malpractice verdict against the law firm Baker and McKenzie. The law suit stemmed from allegations of a conflict of interest on the part of Baker and McKenzie lawyers with regard to various oil-drilling businesses and businessmen.
