    MEDIA, Pa. (AP) — A lawyer imprisoned more than a decade for allegedly hiding $2.5 million during his divorce was back in court Tuesday, but H. Beatty Chadwick failed again to persuade judges to set him free. Attorneys say Chadwick, 68, may be serving the longest stretch in U.S. history for civil contempt. The judge who sent him to jail in 1995 found that he had hidden his wealth in overseas banks rather than allow his ex-wife to get it.
