I first blogged about Pants-On-Fire Lawyer in 2017. It’s worth a read.
Back then, I promised I’d follow the story and update you on any developments. Well, I failed. Last February, the lawyer’s license was suspended for 91 days. There are no details in the suspension order, so I’m not positive if it issued in response to the spontaneous combustion. If so, I imagine a hearing at which the lawyer asked the Supreme Court if it was wrong to “accidentally” set himself on fire during the trial of a client charged with arson whose defense was that the fire was an accident. Because, you know, if anyone had told him that was frowned upon . . .
I’d say, “out of the frying pan and into the fire”, but that might have it backwards.
