Judging by the comments in the ABA Journal website, there may be a second side of the story in the “Lawyer Takes Plea in Case Over His Hardball Litigation Tactics, Will Be Disbarred” case though, of course, once you take a plea, you have to expect disbarment. I’d be curious to see Scott Greenfield’s thoughts as a criminal defense lawyer on the case.
