Willie Gary Ordered to Pay $3.7 Million for Loan Default on His Wings of Justice III
On Thursday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael Dolinger added to the burdens on Willie Gary, the flamboyant Florida lawyer for defaulting on loans for the Boeing 737 he calls “Wings of Justice III.” The federal court ordered that Gary, and his law firm of Gary Williams Lewis & Watson, immediately pay up $3.7 million due to an arm of General Electric Co. If U.S. District Judge Andrew Carter accepts the decision, it would add to the problems Gary is facing and at an inopportune moment.

Gary’s law firm has recently been plagued by an exodus of partners continuing over the last two years, and last year, in October, a federal judge in Albany had ordered Gary’s firm to pay $12.5 million to a litigation finance company that had financed contingency-fee cases handled by Gary.
