Judith Regan sued by her own former lawyers

From USA Today:

Former book publishing powerhouse Judith Regan was sued Monday for legal fees by the firm that prepared her lawsuit against HarperCollins LLC after the publishing company fired her.

In court papers, Dreier LLP says Regan reneged on a retainer agreement she signed and then fired the law firm “in a transparent and calculated effort to avoid paying petitioners the agreed upon fee.”
