Better Late Than Never

The February 21 issue of the Lawyers Manual on Professional Conduct reports a recent disbarment ordered by the Delaware Supreme Court where the client had waited over 20 years to complain that she had been sexually assaulted by her attorney, who was representing her in a drunk driving case. The former client came forward after press reports of the attorney's suspension for similar misconduct. The court rejected the attorney's defense of laches in the bar proceeding. He had claimed he did not recall the client and had replaced the chair in which the conduct had allegedly occurred. (Mike Frisch)
