Lawyer Who Charged UN Briber Ng Lap Seng  $6M Flat Fee Now Sues IRS for Overcharging

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Podcast

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 21 – Francis Lorenzo used his position as UN Ambassador for the Dominican Republic to take and pay bribes for a Macau "UN South South Development Conference Center proposed by  Ng Lap Seng - who on March 15, 2021 was granted release from prison after being represented by lawyer Hugh H. Mo.

By April 23, Ng was reportedly back in Macau, laughing. Still, he is being sued in the SDNY, by Hugh H. Mo, P.C., for unpaid legal fees.

On May 21, Ng filed a motion that Mo "demanded a fixed fee of a total of $6 million ($1 million for the bail hearing, $2 million for pre-trial work and $3 million for trial and, if applicable, sentencing... the Mo fiirm outsourced all of the legal services."

 It is elsewhere reported that Mo, while at the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, mentored a young Sonia Sotomayor. In her memoir, Justice Sotomayor recalled Mr. Mo as an “all around confounder of stereotypes.”

On June 17, SDNY Judge John P. Cronan held a proceeding in the Law Office of Hugh H. Mo's lawsuit against the IRS for "erroneously assessing and collecting penalties in the amount of $13,181.24 from the Mo Firm."

  The case would not go to a jury, and would take only one day. Motions are sued by June 21, and discovery to send by August 30. We'll have more on all this.

This case is Law Firm of Hugh H. Mo, P.C. v. United States Of America, 20-cv-10870 (Cronan).
