Former hand surgeon's lawyers want opponent sanctioned Houston Chronicle Copyright 2012 Houston Chronicle. All rights reserved.

Updated 07:52 p.m., Monday, May 14, 2012 For anyone who thought the ongoing divorce trial between former hand surgeon Michael Brown and estranged wife Rachel could not get any uglier, recently filed motions in the case show that the well of ugliness might be bottomless. Attorneys for the owner of the Brown Hand Centers, who has a proven history of violence against women, have accused the attorney for Rachel Brown of a series of obscene and derogatory statements about female lawyers involved in the case. In a motion for sanctions, Michael Brown's lawyers accuse Marshall Davis Brown - who is unrelated to the parties in the case - of using sexually connotative slurs toward some of them, suggesting that one attorney might be working for an "escort service" because of how she was dressed, asking another whether she wanted him to "examine her breasts for lumps" and another whether they might "share a hotel room."
