Matt Bissonnette, the former Navy SEAL who wrote a book describing the raid that killed Osama bin Laden in 2011, is suing his former lawyers for malpractice. Bissonnette says his lawyers’ bad advice led him to lose his security clearance, give up a significant portion of the book’s income to the government, and a battered reputation. Bissonnette filed the lawsuit under the pseudonym he used to publish the book, “Mark Owen.” After No Easy Day was released in 2012, the Pentagon launched an inquiry that became a criminal probe by the Department of Justice. Bissonnette claims he will lose $8 million because of the attorneys. Named as defendants were attorney Kevin Podlaski and the Carson Boxberger LLC firm in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
