Charles E. Lincoln, III

Charles Lincoln was the lawyer who launched the case Atwater v. Lago Vista, which eventually made it to the U.S. Supreme Court, but not with him as the lawyer for the plaintiff. The way the courts handled that case, and retaliated against Lincoln and others for bringing it, is a tale of judicial and prosecutorial corruption that continues today, and deserves wider attention.
