Texas Lawyers Fought the IRS and Won

The $1.34 million check was the result of a settlement between the
Browns and the government in Alan Brown, et al. v. United States, a
Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) suit the couple filed three years ago in
the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas.
The couple filed the civil suit after they were caught up in a
complicated tax prosecution in which Alan Brown, a well-known criminal
defense attorney with Brown & Norton, and Jean Brown, a family law
solo, allege they were targeted by overzealous Internal Revenue Service
agents, which led to the Browns being indicted in 2003 by a federal
grand jury in Austin, Texas, for allegedly filing false personal tax
returns between 1994 and 1997.
