Nearly five years ago, R. Morgan Holland represented Jason Weland in a bitter divorce. According to Holland’s suit, Weland then penned at least 16 online posts claiming Holland was an unethical attorney who overcharged him.
In the suit, Holland contends he did not overcharge Weland. At the time, Weland paid Holland $26,000 for 11 months of litigation and a 40-day trial, the suit says.
In 2014, Weland lost a lawsuit disputing his legal bills. Shortly afterwards, the posts began appearing online, Holland’s lawsuit says.
