A Louisiana Hearing Committee has recommended a stayed six-month suspension of an attorney for misconduct in settlement negotiations with the state Patient's Compensation Fund. The attorney for the fund filed the bar complaint.
The client died while the negotiations were ongoing. The attorney continued to attempt to achieve a settlement that included future medical bills.
The proof that the attorney knew of the client's death?
He attended the wake. (Mike Frisch)
