The Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board has publicly reprimanded an attorney for misconduct in negotiating with the state Patient's Compensation Fund.
The attorney negoitated for future medical payments on behalf after a client after learning that the client had died. He also misled the fund's counsel into believing that he was representing all claimants in the client's medical malpractice action.
The attorney could not deny that he knew of the client's death. He attended the wake. (Mike Frisch)
