This blog comments on cases involving lawyers, legal malpractice and legal ethics decisions. We often cite decisions that discuss a complaint that was filed against a lawyer. By commenting on a case or a complaint, we are not in any way agreeing with the allegations that were made. We are not the trier of fact. Instead, we are commenting on the significance of the case to the practicing lawyer. All allegations must be subjected to the test of proof before a finder of fact.
Thus, in a post in which I comment on a case filed against a lawyer, (the ARDC has charged lawyer X with failing to file a case within the statute of limitations) I am commenting on the significance of the allegations, not whether those allegations have any merit.
Finally, if you disagree with something that was written, feel free to post a comment.
