Just about two years ago, we had a great verdict in Coleman County. A woman whose husband had basically stolen all his mother’s money but he had died. We brought the case against his estate and his widow had done a lot to try to hide the assets. So it took a whole lot of ferreting out. The interesting thing about it is we tried it in a very tiny, rural Texas county our judge told us that he hadn’t tried a civil case in 18 years to a jury. And the clerks were really surprised and dismayed. We brought back a verdict of several million dollars. It was a lot of fun.
