Reprimand For Unkept Promise

An attorney who had falsely represented that his injured client would reimburse $130,000 of an $800,000 settlement to a medical provider was publicly reprimanded by the Nebaska Supreme Court.

The attorney turned around and sued over his client's obligation after making the promise and accepting a settlement based in part on the statement.

The sanction was imposed as a result of a conditional admission of misconduct. (Mike Frisch)
