The Kraken’s Wake: Disciplinary Issues for Lawyers Involved in Voter Fraud Claims and Capitol Insurrection

In the wake of the Kraken and 60+ alleged voter fraud and election irregularity suits, as well as the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, disciplinary authorities are being called upon to review the conduct of lawyers who promoted claims of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

This seminar will discuss the ethical rules that govern attorney conduct in these circumstances, including Rules 3.1 (Meritorious Claims and Contentions); 3.3 (Candor Toward the Tribunal); 4.1 (Truthfulness in Statements to Others); 4.4 (Respect for Rights of Third Persons); 8.1 (Bar Admission and Disciplinary Matters); 8.3 (Reporting Professional Misconduct); and 8.4 (Misconduct).

The seminar will also discuss the current efforts being made to sanction such attorneys and will explore the line between unpopular – though protected – speech and punishable conduct.
