Eddie Gallagher files lawsuit against former defense team
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher is suing two of his former attorneys and a military legal defense nonprofit.
Gallagher filed the lawsuit in federal court yesterday. He claims his former attorneys, Colby Vokey and Phillip Stackhouse, failed to defend his case properly.
Gallagher was accused of killing a wounded Isis fighter and shooting civilians.
He was acquitted of most of the charges against him during a court martial this summer at Naval Base San Diego.
