Secretary Takes Deposition, Lawyer Gets Reprimand

The web page of the Virginia State Bar reports the following agreed disposition:

On May 28, 2008, the Virginia State Bar Eighth District Committee imposed a public reprimand on Marcus Noah Perdue for violating the disciplinary rule that governs candor toward a tribunal. Mr. Perdue did not promptly reveal to a court that, when he was unavailable for scheduled depositions in a divorce case, his secretary improperly took the depositions, notarized them, and filed them with the court. This was an agreed disposition of a misconduct case against Mr. Perdue.

The link to the reprimand is not yet posted. (Mike Frisch)
