UPDATE - I finally got the repayment of the $564 this week. Check cleared the bank as of today. What I thought was interesting, a cashiers check was purchased 1/13/2011, all the while claiming he couldn't come up with the money until 3/31, he mailed it on 4/4. Not sure what his motive was for stringing this out, other than to be a real PITA. The attorney wasn't happy that I'm withholding his payment for the other lawsuit (we owe him a little over $2000, my share is 50%), I told him he delayed getting this money, and we were going to pay him from our distributions (me and another sibling). As far as I'm concerned he caused these delays, so it's his fault. We weren't going to pay him unless it came from this distribution, he found it incredible we withheld $2000 over only $564! I think I'll wait another few weeks to pay him back.
