Harry Potter is breaking his silence. No single individual knows more secrets and behind-the-scenes details of the historic $17 billion Texas tobacco litigation and the evidence that sent his boss, Texas Attorney General Dan Morales, to jail.
For two decades, Potter refused to talk. Until now. He says a call from livid Wall Street corporate lawyer Arthur Golden in 1998 led Potter to quietly snoop into the computer files of Morales’ secretary, where he found three previously secret, backdated contracts. “That phone call led to Dan going to prison,” Potters says.
