Five for Friday #201

Welcome to Friday!

As usual, much of my Thursday night involved pondering Friday’s post.  I settled on converting “201” into “two of one.”  It eventually led to the recommendation I’m going to make for your weekend.  But first, let me explain the “two of one” construct.

Ozark is a good example.  Of the shows I’ve binged, re-binged, and re-re-binged over the past 7 weeks, Ozark is my favorite. When Season 3 dropped, I re-watched Season 2 to remind myself what had happened.  There it is: 2 seasons of 1 show.  Two of one.

I don’t know how y’all stream, but I’m monogamous. Whatever show I’m into, until I’ve made it through the entire show, it’s the only show I watch.

Confession: I stepped out on Ozark, Season 3. 

Bored, I thought it’d be fun to alternate episodes of Ozark with episodes of another of my all-time favorite shows, Arrested Development.  For those of you who don’t know, Jason Bateman stars in each.  Apparently more addled with the fog & malaise of the times than I’d realized, it’s disturbing how easily entertained I was as I interspersed the shows. No joke: I laughed out loud picturing Michael and the Bluth family laundering money for the cartel while Marty Byrde makes Charlotte run The Banana Stand for the summer.

Anyhow, two shows starring Jason Bateman.  Two of one.

My “two of one” also includes music.

I could put the concert version of “The Weight” by The Band on repeat, stream it to the speakers in the Garage Bar, and listen all night.  During the pandemic, however, I’ve been mesmerized by the cover of “The Weight” that Robbie Robertson, Ringo Starr, and many others did for Playing For Change.  They released the video last September, long before we’d ever heard of the coronavirus.  I didn’t discover it until late March.  I’m fascinated by the extent to which the video feels like social distancing, and how it reflects our current use of technology to generate a sense of togetherness during a global crisis.

Anyhow, two versions of “The Weight.”  Two of one.

I’ve blathered long enough. Here’s my recommendation for the weekend.

Literally and figuratively, every single one of us could use a sunny day.  Well, if a “sunny day” can be reduced to a single thing, we’re about to get two of that thing. Two of one.  Whatever it is that you do to find peace, love and happiness on a sunny day, I hope you do it (safely) this weekend.

Keep rowing folks.  Happy Days are ahead.

Onto the quiz!

Rules

  • None! Open book, open search engine, text-a-friend.
  • Exception:  Question 5.  We try to play that one honest.
  • Unless stated otherwise, the Vermont Rules of Professional Conduct apply.
  • Team entries welcome, creative team names even more welcome.
  • E-mail answers to michael.kennedy@vermont.gov
  • I’ll post the answers & Honor Roll on Monday.
  • Please don’t use the “comment” feature to post your answers.
  • Please consider sharing the quiz with friends & colleagues.
  • Share on social media.  Hashtag it – #fiveforfriday

Question 1

How many hours of pro bono legal services do the Rules suggest a lawyer should provide each year?

  • A.   50, and the rule applies to all lawyers.
  • B.   50, but the rule exempts government lawyers.

Question 2

I often mention “7 Cs of Legal Ethics.”  Each is a single word that begins with the letter “C.”  The construct is a helpful tool to remember the basics.

Anyhow, there is a rule that includes an exception that allows a lawyer to do something otherwise prohibited in order “to establish a claim or defense . . . .in a controversy between the lawyer and client.”

What is the “C” associated with the rule?

Question 3

In Vermont, a lawyer has a duty to take reasonable remedial measures upon learning that a client or witness called by the lawyer has offered material evidence that is false.  Per the applicable rule, this includes, if necessary, disclosure to the tribunal.  By rule, how long does the duty continue?

  • A.  until the lawyer is allowed to withdraw.
  • B.  until the conclusion of the proceeding.
  • C.  forever.
  • D.  Trick question.  There is no circumstance in which a lawyer is authorized to inform a tribunal that a client submitted false evidence, even if the evidence was material.

Question 4

Former Client contends that Attorney committed malpractice.  They meet.  Former Client is not represented.  Former Client and Attorney discuss a settlement.

By rule, what must Attorney do before settling?

  • A.  advise Former Client in writing of the desirability of seeking independent legal advice related to the matter.
  • B.  give Former Client a reasonable amount of time to seek independent legal advice related to the matter.
  • C.  stop settlement discussions because lawyers are prohibited from settling malpractice claims with former clients who are not represented by counsel.
  • D.  A and B.

Question 5

Speaking of Arrested Development, the show includes 3 of my favorite fictional attorneys. Julia Louis-Dreyfuss appeared in a handful of episodes as Maggie Lizer, an ethically challenged prosecutor.

The other two attorneys are Barry Zuckerkorn and Bob Loblaw.  The former struggles with the duty of competence, while the latter runs the greatest blog in the history of blogs: The Bob Loblaw Law Blog.  Here’s Zuckerkorn’s business card.   For the question that follows, it’s literally the second biggest hint in the history of hints, behind only the hint in the introduction to the quiz.

5 Life Lessons from Barry Zuckerkorn

Arrested Development debuted in 2004.  However, the actors who play Zuckerkorn and Loblaw also appeared together in a popular comedy that debuted in 1974.  Name that show that debuted in 1974.

 

 

 

 

Monday Morning Answers – The Fair

  • Bob Grundstein, Esq.
  • Thomas Kester, Assistant General Counsel, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Vermont
  • Jonathan Teller-Elsberg, Vermont Law School, Class of 2020,

Answers

Question 1

Which belongs somewhere else than with the others?

A lawyer shall:

  • A.   keep the client reasonably informed about the status of the matter.
  • B.   explain the matter to the extent reasonably necessary to permit the client to make informed decisions.
  • C.  in an ex parte proceeding, inform the court of all material facts known to the lawyer which will enable the court to make an informed decision
  • D.   Trick question. All 3 are in separate rules.

C is in Rule 3.3(d), and is an aspect of the larger duty of candor to a court.  A & B are parts of Rule 1.4 and the duty to communicate with a client.

Question 2

True or false.

There’s a rule that specifically requires a lawyer to make reasonable efforts to expedite litigation, consistent with the interests of the client.

TRUE – Rule 3.2

Question 3

By rule, a lawyer shall not act as an advocate in a trial in which:

  • A.  the lawyer is likely to be a “necessary witness”
  • B.  another lawyer in the lawyer’s firm is a party
  • C.  another lawyer in the lawyer’s firm is a witness
  • D.  All of the above.

This is the language from Rule 3.7 and disqualifies the lawyer who is likely to be a necessary witness from acting as an advocate at trial.  The situations in B & C are not absolute bans, but only DQ the lawyer if the relationships otherwise create a conflict.

Question 4

A client’s failure to abide by the terms of a fee agreement:

  • A.   is not grounds for a lawyer to move to withdraw

  • C.   permits the lawyer to move to withdraw.  Rule 1.16(b)(5); See also Comment [8]
  • D.  is not covered by the rules of professional conduct

Question 5

Inspired by a recent text from one of the first people ever to follow this blog.

Bob Loblaw is the Bluth family lawyer on Arrested Development.  His advertising slogan is “You don’t need double talk, you need Bob Loblaw!”  Also, as do all great lawyers, he blogs.  His blog is the “Bob Loblaw Law Blog.”  The Bluth family hired Bob to replace the incompetent Barry Zuckerkorn.

In real life, the actors who play Loblaw and Zuckerkorn also played characters in a sitcom that debuted 30 years before Arrested Development.

Name the sitcom.

First, if you didn’t pick up on the joke, Bob Loblaw is named as such in order to sound like “blah blah blah.”  His blog is “blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.” 

Scott Baio plays Loblaw and Henry Winkler plays Zuckerkorn.   An eternity ago, the two played Chachi & Arthur Fonzarelli (Fonzie) in Happy Days.

Answers

Question 1

An attorney called with an inquiry.  I listened, then said, “I don’t know.  Would it be for either (1) a person of limited means; or (2) a charitable, religious, civic, community or other type of organization that is designed to help people of limited means?”

Given my response, it’s most likely that the attorney called to ask about:

  • A.  the pro bono rule; V.R.Pr.C. 6.1
  • B.  the rule on limited appearances
  • C.  the rule on mandatory withdrawal
  • D.  a succession plan

Question 2

A comment to one of the rules states that “a lawyer’s work load must be controlled so that each matter can be handled competently.”  It’s a comment to the rule that:

  • A.   requires a lawyer to act with reasonable diligence & promptness. V.R.Pr.C. 1.3, Comment [2]
  • B.   prohibits concurrent conflicts of interest
  • C.   refers to prospective clients
  • D.   False.  This is nowhere in the rules or comments.  Tt’s just something Mike says at CLEs.

Question 3

Speaking of ketchup on hot dogs, a lawyer violates the rules by engaging in a “serious crime.”  What’s a “serious crime?”

  • A.   Only crimes of moral turpitude.
  • B.   Only felonies.
  • C.   Any felony and some lesser crimes.  V.R.Pr.C. 8.4(b)
  • D.   The rule is silent.

Question 4

Lawyer called me with an inquiry. I listened, then replied

“in my view,  you can always advise a client as to the consequences of any contemplated course of action. In fact, the rule says that you ‘may discuss the legal consequences of any propose course of conduct with a client and may counsel or assist the client to make a good faith effort to determine the validity, scope, meaning or application of the law.’ “

I was referring to the rule that:

  • A.   governs trust account management
  • B.   sets out the duty of candor to a tribunal
  • C.   deals with conflicts of interest
  • D.  prohibits lawyers from counseling or assisting a client to engage in criminal or fraudulent conduct.  V.R.Pr.C. 1.2(d)

Question 5

I signed up for HBO Now last weekend so I could catsup on Game of Thrones before next week’s opener.  An added bonus? Ketching-up on one of my other favorite shows, one that spurs this question:

This actress holds the record for most Emmy’s for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series.  Alas, in what can only be labeled a serious crime, she did not win for her stint in Arrested Development, when she played a prosecutor who, among other things:

  • Spent most of her career pretending to be blind to draw sympathy from jurors & judges;
  • Slept with a defendant’s son mid-trial to try to gain access to incriminating evidence.
  • During one trial, pretended to be pregnant to draw sympathy from jurors

Name the actress.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus in her role as Maggie Lizer

Ghost Posts. Or are yours real?

To borrow a phrase from Larry David and Teri Hatcher, my blog posts are real and they’re spectacular!  Apparently not all law blogs can truthfully say the former.

Last month, the ABA Journal posted Ghostwriting for law blogs? Ethics are murkyIt’s a topic that’s new to me, one not raised in any of the ethics inquiries or formal disciplinary complaints that I’ve responded to and reviewed over the years.  The ABA Journal post includes insight from some of the more well-known voices on both professional responsibility and tech ethics.

But let’s back up for a moment.  You might be asking your self: “self, what is Mike even talking about?”  Good question.

The ABA’s post references this article that Kailee Goold posted to Ohio + Legal Ethics in June 2014. In it, Attorney Goold wrote:

  • “What are We Talking About?

    The ghost-blogging I’m talking about is when an attorney pays someone else (a non-attorney) to write articles published under the attorney’s name on the attorney or law firm’s website. As a result, the world thinks the attorney wrote it when the attorney had little to no part in its creation.”

Again, not an issue I’ve encountered.  But, an issue that raises ethics concerns.

Many law blogs are part of a lawyer’s website.  Websites communicate information about the services that the lawyer provides. Per V.R.Pr.C. 7.1,

  • “A lawyer shall not make a false or misleading communication about the lawyer or the lawyer’s services.  A communication is false or misleading if it contains a material misrepresentation of fact or law, or omits a fact necessary to make the statement as a whole not materially misleading.”

The final sentence of Comment [1] is “whatever means are used to make known a lawyer’s services, statements about them must be truthful.”

Also, V.R.Pr.C. 8.4(c) prohibits a lawyer from engaging in conduct that involves “dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation.”

So, let’s say that a firm focuses on Practice Area.  And let’s say that the firm’s website includes a blog dedicated to Practice Area.  Does the firm violate the rules by paying a content developer to ghostwrite the posts and then posting them under the “byline” of one of the firm’s lawyers?

My gut reaction was “is it really THAT misleading?” But then I paused.  Because whenever we start asking whether something “is really THAT misleading,” we’ve established that it is, in fact, misleading.

In that it never arises, I don’t want to belabor the issue.  Suffice to say, if your website or blog includes posts that you paid someone else to ghostwrite, check out the articles referenced above.

Finally, I proof read by reading aloud.  Reading this blog about law blogs aloud reminded me of two things.

First, it reminded me of Elizabeth Kruska & Wesley Lawrence, perennial members of the #fiveforfriday Honor Roll in Legal Ethics.

Why them?

Because, like me, I know they’re fans of the second thing that reading today’s post aloud reminded me of: the world’s greatest law blog – The Bob Loblaw Law Blog.

Monday Morning Answers #128

It makes her think of me.

Friday’s reflection on fairs gone by is here.  The answers follow today’s honor roll.

But first, I spent some time in the NEK this weekend, running both around Island Pond and along Lake Willoughby. I’ve been up there often, but have never come over Bald Mountain from Island Pond to Willoughby.  The views from Sentinel Rock State Park are phenomenal!  I imagine the area is prime leaf peeping territory.

Sentinel Rock

Sadly, don’t wait too long!  The northern side of the mountain already has several patches of red . . .in AUGUST! I assume the early color is due to the dry summer. Alas, Willoughby itself was warm and as crystal clear as ever.  If you get a chance, it’d be a great spot to beat the heat the week!

Monday Morning Answers

I’m not messing around this morning.  Last week’s quiz is HERE. The answers follow the Honor Roll.

HONOR ROLL

Perfect scores in Steeler Black & Gold

  • Matthew Anderson, Pratt Vreeland Kennelly Martin & White
  • Beth DeBernardi (Permanent Honor Roll Status as of Week 48)
  • Andrew Delaney, Martin Associates
  • Robert Grundstein
  • Keith Kasper, McCormick Fitzpatrick Kasper & Burchard
  • Patrick Kennedy, First Brother (Permanent Honor Roll Status as of Week 48)
  • Aileen Lachs, Mickenburg Dunn Lachs & Smith
  • Hal Miller, First American
  • Kane Smart, Down Rachlin Martin
  • Emily Tredeau, Office of the Defender General
  • Allison Wannop, Vermont Superior Court

Question 1

With respect to contingent fee agreements, which is most accurate?

  • A.  If in a writing signed by the client, there is a rebuttable presumption that the agreement is reasonable.
  • B.  Contingent fee agreements are prohibited in post-judgment divorce actions for past due spousal maintenance.
  • C.  A lawyer’s portion of a contingent fee shall not be calculated until after expenses have been deducted.
  • D.  Contingent fee agreements shall specify whether the client’s expenses will be deducted before or after the fee is calculated.  See, Rule 1.5(c).

Question 2

Law Firm has a Facebook page.  Firm posts ” ‘LIKE’ this page and receive a gift certificate to Hubba Hubba Smokehouse!”  (my dad clicked it 74 times).    Some commentators and disciplinary types have argued that the post might violate:

  • A.   the advertising rule. Arguably, a “like” is the equivalent of recommending a lawyer’s services.  Thus, a “like” might violate Rule 7.2(b).  
  • B.   the rule on direct contact with prospective clients
  • C.   the rule that prohibits a lawyer from inducing another to violate the rules.
  • D.   the rule on client confidences

Question 3

Fill in the blank.

Attorney called me with inquiry.  Attorney wants to speak with Patrick. Attorney explained to me who Patrick is and why Attorney wants to contact Patrick.  I replied “I need more info. Has the clerk certified that Patrick’s term of service complete?”

By my response, it is most likely Attorney encountered Patrick in Patrick’s role as a JUROR.

Key to know before contacting jurors: whether the court has certified that the term of service is complete.  Compare Rule 3.5(b)(2) to Rule 3.5(c).

Question 4

With respect to Advanced Conflict Waivers, which is most accurate?

  • A.  They do not violate the rules if the client was independently represented in entering into the agreement.
  • B.   The rules specifically prohibit them in criminal cases.
  • C.   They are allowed, but only when a lawyer who represents a married couple during the marriage asks one to sign a waiver that will apply should the couple decide to divorce.
  • D.   They are more likely to be enforced if the client is a sophisticated client. See, Rule 1.7, Comment 22.   I have reservations about advance conflict waivers. Conflict waivers require “informed consent.” I don’t know how a client can consent to waive a conflict that arises after a client agrees to waive it. Doesn’t seem “informed” to me.

Question 5

Barry Zuckerkorn is a lawyer.  He’s best known for representing various members of a family. Fortunately, he’s a fictional lawyer.  Otherwise, California’s disciplinary prosecutors would have a caseload full of Barry.  Among other things, Zuckerkorn:

zuckerkorn

  • paid someone to take the bar exam for him
  • advised a husband & wife that the government can’t charge them both with the same crime, especially if they hold all conversations on a boat in international waters
  • used “Ask Jeeves” to do his online legal research
  • advised a criminal defense client to have a family member steal evidence from the prosecutor’s house
  • was arrested for prostitution
  • once told clients who were facing significant legal trouble that there was good news & bad new . . .  “the good news is that your legal costs are going to make me a fortune.”
  • was fired and replaced as the family’s lawyer by Bob LobLaw

Name the TV show.  ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT.  If you haven’t seen it, check it out on Netflix. In a brief 3-year run, it won six Prime Time Emmys and was named by TIME Magazine as one of the 100 best TV shows ever.

Bonus: the actor who played Zuckerkorn first gained fame on a much older TV show.  Name that show.

Henry Winkler played Zuckerkorn. So, heyyyyyyy, the answer is HAPPY DAYS.

  • Hal Miller, First American
  • Kane Smart, Downs Rachlin Martin
  • Allison Wannop, Esq.

High Honors

ANSWERS

Question 1

Several rules require a lawyer to obtain a client’s “informed consent, confirmed in writing.”  Which is most accurate?

  • A.  In situations that require a client’s informed consent, a lawyer may not act until the client’s informed consent is confirmed in writing.
  • B.  If a lawyer has obtained a client’s informed consent, the lawyer may act in reliance on that consent so long as it is confirmed in writing within a reasonable time thereafter.  Rule 1.0, Comment[1].
  • C.  The rules are silent on this issue.

Question 2

Lawyer called me with an inquiry. I listened. Then, I asked “will any activities of the partnership include the practice of law?”

Most likely, Lawyer called to discuss:

  • A.  Selling her firm, but remaining “of counsel.”
  • B.  Bringing on a new attorney to work “of counsel.”
  • C.  Forming a partnership with a nonlawyer.  See, Rule 5.4(b) and the hint in the opening paragraph of the post.
  • D.  Opening an office in another jurisdiction.

Question 3

Attorney called me with an ethics inquiry.  I listed, then said “a comment to the rule makes it clear that the rule doesn’t apply to an organization’s former constituents.”

Given my statement, it is most likely that Attorney called me to discuss the rule that deals with what topic?  Contacting a former constituent of a represented organization on the subject of the representation.  See, Rule 4.2, Comment [7] (“Consent of the organization’s lawyer is not required for communication with a former constituent.”)

Question 4

Lawyer called with an inquiry. I responded “the rule only applies if a ‘significant motive’ for doing so is your ‘pecuniary gain.’”

What did Lawyer call to discuss?  The lawyer called to discuss direct contact with a prospective client or clients.  AKA – “solicitation.”  See, Rule 7.3(a).

Question 5

A long, long time ago, Henry Winkler and Scott Baio gained fame playing Fonzie and Chachi on Happy Days.  More recently, the actors played lawyers – one ethical, one not so ethical – on an Emmy award winning television show. Name the show.

With a special acknowledgement to Emily Tredeau of the Prisoners’ Rights Office,  Fonzie and Chachi later played attorneys Barry Zuckerkorn and Bob Loblaw on Arrested Development.  Thankfully, I no longer have to compete for readers with the Bob Loblaw Law Blog.
