Ethics 101: Suing Your Client Is A Conflict

The web page of the North Carolina State Bar reports:

[A] Maxton lawyer...was reprimanded by the Grievance Committee. [He] represented four clients in a personal injury case arising from a car accident. He failed to notify any of his clients that he had conflicts of interest. He filed two civil cases. In one civil case, [He] named two of his clients as defendants. Despite his conflict of interest, which required him to withdraw from representing any of the clients, [He] withdrew from representing only two of the clients and continued to represent the remaining two.
