The Israeli government has agreed to pay the family of Ben Zygier, a former lawyer at Norton Rose predecessor firm Deacons, roughly $1.2 million after the so-called Prisoner X hanged himself in a prison near Tel Aviv in late 2010. Zygier put his legal career on hold to join Israeli intelligence agency the Mossad, where he mistakenly leaked secrets exposing two Hezbollah informants that led to his arrest.
