Evergreen Security investors are trying to recover $500,000 from the Orlando-based firm, whose management perpetrated the largest consumer-investment scam in Florida history in the 1990s, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The investors filed a lawsuit against Orlando law firm GrayRobinson P.A. to recoup fees the firm received from a former client accused of participating in the fraud. The lawsuit states that the firm improperly withdrew $510,000 in fees from it held in a trust for financial adviser J. Anthony Huggins.
