    So the lawyer gets about $500,000 of this award, no?

    The City of Worcester actually sued the attorney (named Ryan) for Truong.
    “What the city claims is that Ryan allowed almost two years to pass before he tried to get Truong released by filing a motion to suppress her confession. Thus, “Ryan’s breach of his duty was a direct and proximate cause of [Truong’s] alleged injuries and damages.””

    Seems really weird to me.
