Abbe D. Lowell was quoted in the April 20 issue of The Dallas Morning News in an article regarding the indictment of former Mayor Pro Tem Don Hill and thirteen others on charges of taking kickbacks from local developers. Mr. Potashnik, the owner of Southwest Housing, is accused of paying bribes to Mr. Hill. As Mr. Potashnik's lawyer, Mr. Lowell said that he is not concerned about comments from co-defendant Allen McGill, who recently plead guilty and is cooperating with government authorities. "Southwest Housing had nothing to do with McGill. He might have tried to extort them, but that was the extent of any connection," Mr. Lowell said.
