Attorney Kennan Dandar wants to represent a woman suing the Church of Scientology over the suicide of her son. The woman wants Dandar to represent her.

So what's the problem? Nothing, a Florida federal court ruled last year, issuing an injunction barring a state court from kicking Dandar off the case.
