LIES AND THE LYING LAWYERS WHO DESERVE SANCTIONS

Carolyn Elefant's got a rant on sanctions and suspensions. And I like it:

"...I can live with lawyers who are, occasionally rude to judges (who after all, may deserve it) or even lawyers who don't return phone calls to clients who pester them several times a day or don't pay bills on time.  But there's simply no excuse for lying -- to the court or to a client..."

Read the whole thing here. Do you agree? Or do you think there are times when you have -- and others should -- lie to clients for their own good?

She's open to comments.
