No Class Actions Draws Reprimand

The Kentucky Supreme Court has imposed a public reprimand of an attorney "for engaging in sexually explicit telephone conversations, and for making sexual advances towards the client while [the attorney] was representing the client in a class action, sometime in November and December of 2003." The italics are in the original.

The client "turned down the attorney's advances and notified the firm that she was going elsewhere for representation. The client stayed with the firm after a partner...talked to the client and reassigned the claim to another member of the firm."

The attorney had three prior private reprimands "for matters not similar to the facts of this case." (Mike Frisch)
