Schnitt refuses to pay attorney Campbell after DUI scandal

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Radio host Todd "MJ" Schnitt and his former attorney Phil Campbell were in court Monday, with Schnitt suing Campbell for legal malpractice.

Schnitt paid Campbell's firm $1 million for legal services, but he owes another million and is refusing the pay.

Schnitt also says he wants to recoup the $1 million he already paid.

This all stems from Campbell's DUI arrest in January during Schnitt's trial against Bubba the Love Sponge.

Prosecutors dropped the charges, saying it was all set up, but Schnitt claims it affected his attorney's credibility.

Campbell represented Schnitt in the defamation lawsuit, but the jury eventually ruled in Bubba's favor.
