Two Local Attorneys Battle Over Winnings on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?"
Attorney Kevin Hirsch isn't asking to be a millionaire. He just wants $11,376.
But who know if that will ever happen.
Francis X. Donnelly of the Detroit News reports Hirsch is locked in a legal battle with fellow attorney Rebecca Kesler.
He claims he helped get her on the show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" in 2009 and she won $50,000. He says the agreement was that he get one-third her winnings.
She has denied that. He has sued in Romulus 34th District Court for breach of contract. The battle has gone on for three years, the News reports.
Kesler lost the suit in April but is appealing.
In July, the News reports that presiding Judge David Parrott, who has presided over the case since its inception in 2009, lost his cool over a legal argument Kessler made.
"Your argument is frivolous — again," Parrott yelled. "It is devoid of all arguable legal merit. I can't believe you are that monumentally incompetent. I've had it with you."
