Patriot namesakes battle over legal fee

It sounds like a fight between Founding Fathers: Patrick Henry versus James Monroe in the Richmond County courthouse.

Actually, that’s lawyer Patrick C. Henry II of Richmond squaring off against lawyer James Monroe of Warsaw in a lawsuit over Monroe’s legal fee for a juvenile defendant.

As VLW reports, a Hanover County judge has overruled Monroe’s demurrer to an action seeking an accounting for a $45,000 flat fee in light of Monroe’s discharge from the case.

While Monroe is the defendant in the action, Henry is counsel for the plaintiffs: a son accused of rape and his father, who allegedly paid Monroe’s fee.

We have no word on whether the dispute includes differences over Constitutional amendments.
