"King of Torts" dies in San Antonio

This article from the San Antonio Express-News details the life and career of Pat Maloney, Sr. This famous plaintiffs attorney won the first million-dollar verdict in the history of San Antonio.

He also served as a Marine in World War II and was wounded while fighting in the Pacific.

As the article states:

"Maloney made himself a promise that if he survived the war, he would attend Mass every day. He often arrived at San Fernando Cathedral a half-hour before 6 a.m. Mass.

Unwilling to open earlier, Father Virgilio Elizondo, the church's former rector, finally gave Maloney a key to the cathedral and showed him where to turn on the lights.

Maloney still had the key when he died."

Pat Maloney, Sr. died September 11th, 2005 at the age of 81.
