Ethics panel finds attorney has duty to supervise law firm website design
For new solos, start-ups and anyone else thinking about creating a new law firm website, this North Carolina professional ethics panel reprimanded an attorney who failed to properly supervise an independent web designed who apparently used the copyrighted material from another firm's site. From the North Carolina state bar website:
Roderick M. Wright of Charlotte was reprimanded by the Grievance Committee. Wright did not supervise an independent contractor hired to design his law firm website. The contractor developed a site almost identical to another firm's website. Wright did not review the content of the website for several years.
