Phony Sunken Treasure puts Law Firm in Deep Water

A fortune in emeralds on the Caribbean seafloor was too much temptation for a Delaware law firm likely to be sanctioned for using the courts to attempt to legitimize what has turned out to be a hoax.

Like a bad movie plot - accusations from other treasure hunters that the find was to good to be true and analysis that showed the emeralds to be coated with modern epoxy to enhance their appearance have left questions about how much the law firm knew after the suicide of the original finder.
