Burress v. Langston lawsuit dismissed without payment

Attorney Robert “Bo” Burress’ lawsuit against former associate Joey Langston was dismissed without any payout.

An agreed court order from circuit court in Prentiss County shows the lawsuit’s dismissal – not settlement – with neither Burress nor Langston acknowledging “any liability” in the case.

Burress, who once practiced with Langston, sued him in late 2011 claiming Langston and his Booneville-based law firm failed to pay him what he expected for his part in their winning a $20.8 million federal court jury award in 2005.
