One of the most famous lawyers in the country is preparing a case that could make Kwame Kilpatrick a millionaire many times over.


Make no mistake, Kwame Kilpatrick wants to be rich – filthy rich.  Meet the man who says he will make it happen.

Florida attorney Willie Gary says in the next 10 days he will file a lawsuit in Mississippi that could set the record for the largest award in history. He says kwame Kilpatrick will be a multi-millionaire: not $10 million or $20 million not $100 million or even $500 million.  He says he will deliver a $ 1 billion dollar verdict to Kwame Kilpatrick.

Willie Gary knows a lot about money. He lives in this incredible $10 million 25,000 square foot waterfront mansion in Florida.

He knows a lot about making other people money.   The last time he was in Mississippi he won an anti trust case worth $500 million.  Now he’s going back to Mississippi to sue Skytel on behalf of Kwame Kilpatrick.

Recently a Federal Court sent the Kilpatrick case to State Court.  Gary says it could increase Kilpatrick’s payday ten-fold

Kwame Kilpatrick was convicted of perjury, forced to resign as mayor of Detroit. Right now he is charged in a 38 count federal racketeering indictment; Gary says that doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve millions of dollars from Skytel.

Skytel released thousands of Kilpatrick’s messages, including dozens of sex messages to his secret lover Christine Beatty, to an attorney who gave them to the media.
