Dr. Michael Gleeson is miffed that his lawyer got $600K when he sued the cops and won $2 million.
While the doc/lawyer friction is interesting. The back story to how it got to this point is fantastic.
In 1999, Dr. Gleeson approached the owner of the Grandview Gentlemen's Club.
"How about I enhance your employees' breasts," he said. Or at least something to that effect.
"Brilliant," the proprietor probably replied. And they had a deal.
Gleeson got to work, enlarging the breasts by inserting an implant through a tunnel from the belly button to the pocket beneath the breasts.
But then, let's call her Cheyenne West, didn't like her new look. So she called the cops.
The police arrested Dr. Gleeson on 400, YES 400, separate charges linked to his services.
But the charges were eventually tossed and Dr. Gleeson sued the cops and some local governments for the mess. And he won.
Now, Dr. Gleeson says his lawyer shouldn't have gotten a 30% cut and he's asking a federal judge to slice it.
