More Overzealousness

The Illinois ARDC has filed an amended complaint alleging misconduct on the part of an attorney admitted in 2003. The attorney represented a father who had lost custody and control of medical decisions for a minor son. The father retained the attorney to attempt to enjoin a scheduled tonsillectomy. The effort had failed in Illinois. It is alleged that on the day of an adverse decision in the Illinois litigation, the attorney filed an action in Missouri  "seeking monetary damages against the medical providers who were scheduled to perform the tonsillectomy" and sought a TRO. It is further alleged that the attorney failed to disclose the adverse Illinois decision and made false representations to a Missouri judge. Finally, the attorney is alleged to have made false statements in the disciplinary proceedings. (Mike Frisch)
