The last time they faced off in a legal battle, Dunn Lampton was a U.S. attorney and Oliver Diaz was a Mississippi Supreme Court justice accused of bribery and tax evasion.

Now Diaz and his wife are suing Lampton for allegedly conspiring to ruin the couple's lives.

Oliver and Jennifer Diaz were indicted in 2003 along with prominent Gulf Coast attorney Paul Minor and two former lower court judges on federal bribery allegations. Oliver Diaz was eventually cleared of the bribery charges in 2005 and tax evasion in 2006.

Now, in a complex lawsuit complete with claims and counter claims, Jennifer Diaz alleges Lampton conspired with his cousin, Leslie Lampton, to illegally access their tax records in an attempt to force Oliver Diaz off the bench.
