There is an oil and gas case that I can mention and it relates to a very large national case that it’s called a Qui Tam case that some of the biggest lawyers in Texas handled, two of them were on the tobacco five team. And we had a client come to us with an explanation that that case against most of the major oil companies in the United States although it was settled for millions of dollars was not settled for enough. And it was settled in a way that benefited the lawyers and took advantage of their clients.

Again, Grace and I together partnered with a lawyer in Houston and took the lawyers on that had made that settlement. Tried the case for almost three weeks and on the verge of going to the jury were able to settle that case and restore some justice.
