Just A Mistake, Not An Ethical Violation
The Indiana Supreme Court has issued a published judgment in favor of an attorney accused of knowingly making a false statement to a tribunal. The attorney had cited a Court of Appeals decision at a suppression hearing that had been vacated and replaced by a Supreme Court decision.
The hearing officer accepted the attorney's explanation that he had not knowingly cited incorrect law. The Disciplinary Commission did not seek review. (Mike Frisch)
