Deceptive Negotiating Leads to Sanction

A few weeks ago, I blogged on the ethics of “puffery” in negotiations.

Today, I stumbled across this article in the Tacoma New Tribune.  It reports a case in which a judge sanctioned two lawyers $32,000 for “intentionally misleading conduct” during  settlement negotiations.

Be careful out there.
