Name Calling Leads To Reprimand, Probation

An attorney in Michigan was sanctioned for misconduct in that he "used a variety of demeaning terms to describe counsel who opposed him in 14 depositions between 1994 and 2002; and filed a pleading which falsely alleged that another attorney was mentally disturbed and posed a physical danger to others." The attorney was reprimanded by the Attorney Discipline Board and placed on probation for two years. (Mike Frisch)
