How Much Would You Pay A Lawyer Before Going To Triial? 


A Texas State District Judge has awarded $3 million to an Austin couple's divorce lawyers. The case hasn't even gone to trial yet.


According to documentation, the money will go for accountants and other experts once the case gets to trial. The Lacours own a large car accessory business, and the value of the estate is in question.  The $3 million will be split between both the husband's and the wife's lawyers.


Judge Covington defended her decision by saying, "I might have chosen to spend my dollar a different way, but that isn't what I had to decide. I was confident that the work being done, or proposed to be done, was useful."
