What's being said

  • The very first place Ms. Stovall should focus her efforts in in addressing the rampant abuses, violations of law and due process, and blatant corruption in our state‘s "family" lawyers - a small and well connected of whom have co-opted our state‘s court‘s for their personal profit and gain at the expense of families and children. No more should the CBA be silent on this issue and simply excuse this away. No more should our state‘s Grievance Committee look the other way, be staffed by some of the worst offenders, and simply rubber stamp this corruption - which is being very publicly exposed for what it really is and with the legislature now paying very close attention.

    How about working to change the selectivity with which the SGC panels and counsel enforce the Rules of Prof Conduct? In a recent matter two lawyers appeared for two opposing LLC‘s in the same litigation, using one‘s info. against it on behalf of the other. In dismissing a grievance against the two, the panel did not even acknowledge these underlying facts. The decision may as well have said, "These lawyers can do what they want," or "The grievant isn‘t someone we need to worry about... just not upsetting some powerful members of a powerful firm."
