The New Jersey Supreme Court has imposed a public reprimand of an attorney who threatened to institute a civil RICO action and criminal charges against his wife and her counsel in an emotionally-charged divorce matter.
The attorney sent an e-mail that ended:
...this fight will happen on my schedule. If the complaint isn't filed today or tomorrow, don't think its going away. With God as my witness, I swear that this will not end until you are in jail for perjury and Jennifer and Sal are disbarred for suborning it.
The attorney also violated Rule 4.2 by sending a copy of the e-mail to his wife, a represented party. (Mike Frisch)
