A state record $581 million lawsuit verdict will almost certainly be slashed on appeal, but plaintiff attorney Tom Methvinâe(TM)s firm will eventually get a sizable chunch of change.

The Eufaula native may need it as long as the media circus surrounding the case lasts. Methvin has had little chance to practice law this week granting interviews to a host of national media outlets.

A hectic week of hitting the airwaves peaked Thursday morning, when Methvin was interviewed on ABCâe(TM)s âeoeGood Morning America.âe

In an interview with ABC legal analyst Jeffery Toobin, Methvin reiterated earlier statements about the case. Although actual damages in the lawsuit over the financing of a pair of satellite dishes amounted to $1,200, Methvin says the eye-popping punitive damages verdict was justified-sending a message to a corrupt company.

âeoeDonâe(TM)t cheat people who canâe(TM)t help themselves,âe Methvin said on the nationally-televised show. âeoeItâe(TM)s justified this way. Some corporations are coming into our living rooms, targeting the illiterate, the blind and the poor.âe

Methvins Secretary, Anna Moorer, said Thursday she âeoecanâe(TM)t keep up with the voice mail,âe which was jammed with over 50 messages from various media.

Already this week, Methvin appeared on âeoeNBC Nightly Newsâe with Tom Brokaw and âeoeABC World News Tonightâe with Peter Jennings. He also recorded interviews for radio, including the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and other major stations in the U.S., from Toledo, Ohio to Detroit Mich.
