Lawyers Prevail in Money Fight With Brunei Prince



    Inspiring Stories of Hope

    Two British attorneys have won a multimillion-dollar tussle with Brunei's Prince Jefri Bolkiah.

    They said he owed them millions of dollars in fees. Husband-and-wife legal team Faith Zaman Derbyshire and Thomas Derbyshire could come away with more than $21 million after Wednesday's jury verdict in a New York court. The prince's side is challenging the jury's findings.

    Jurors awarded Thomas Derbyshire more than $10 million in one piece of the case. Jurors also found for Faith Derbyshire on another issue worth $11 million. Both sides had agreed to that amount if she prevailed on that matter.

    The jury awarded about $54,000 to the prince. He said the Derbyshires stole at least $7 million from him through various schemes.
