BMW? What BMW?
A hearing committee in Louisiana has recommended a public reprimand and ethics school based on a complaint filed by a former client and alleged "runner" who the committee found to be "evasive and at other times contentious, with much of his testimony of questionable credibility." The committee found that the lawyer had made improper loans and advanced living expenses to the complainant but insufficient evidence that the complainant had secured clients for the lawyer or made false statements in the bar investigation. The bar had charged that the lawyer lied in denying that he had purchased a BMW for the complainant. (Mike Frisch)
