Legal Malpractice and Penn State Scandal

The Legal Intelligencer reports that Gary Schultz, a former Penn State administrator now facing criminal charges, "has filed a praecipe for writ of summons against the university's former general counsel, Cynthia Baldwin, indicating he intends to sue her for legal malpractice."    According to the article,  at least two Penn State employees testified before the grand jury believing Baldwin was there as their lawyer.   Baldwin, however, asserts that she was representing the university, not the employees, but "she did not think it was "appropriate" to interrupt the proceedings and clarify."
