Document System Provides Evidence Of Misconduct

The Nebraska Supreme Court has disbarred an attorney whose neglect of a personal injury matter led to dismissal of the case. The attorney therafter "strung along [the client] for nearly 2 years" into believing that the case was still active.

The referee found that the attorney had falsely claimed to have advised the client both orally and in writing of his intention not to proceed with the matter. The attorney used a "Worlddex" document system that provides sequential numbers to documents that he creates. The document system resulted in evidence that cast substantial doubt on the claim of wrtitten notice to the client. (Mike Frisch)
