Two reports on consequences for conduct in violation of Rule 3.3: one criminal prosecution of criminal defense lawyer and one disbarment

In a rare criminal prosecution of a defense lawyer, a prosecutor today at trial accused a veteran attorney in Washington of devising a scheme to use fake evidence and perjured testimony to clear a client in a drug case.  The Blog of the Legal Times has the story here.

Meanwhile in an unrelated story, the Legal Profession Blog is reporting on the disbarment of a lawyer who admitted to using false evidence in a case.
