Ex-Trump campaign aide Rick Gates is being sued by his former lawyers for stiffing them out of nearly $369,000 in legal fees, Politico reported.

According to a complaint filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, Gates hired the New York law firm Doar Rieck Kaley & Mack to represent him in November 2017 after special counsel Robert Mueller's team filed a number of charges against him and ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

In February, the firm stopped working with Gates because of unpaid bills and a deteriorating relationship on both sides, Politico reported.

By late February, Gates had agreed to a plea deal with Mueller, pleading guilty to conspiring against the U.S. and misleading federal investigators, and became a key witness in Manafort's Virginia trial, where Manafort was found guilty of bank and tax fraud. 

But according to the complaint, Gates has still only coughed up $20,000 of his outstanding legal bill, and the firm is suing for the remaining money and interest, along with a slew of other expenses.
