 Here is another installment on the "how not to practice law" series...

In today's story, the lawyer lied to the client and the court claiming to be suffering from cancer in order to have the court agree to let the lawyer withdraw from representation.

Moral of the story:  don't lie.  And especially, don't lie to the court.  Simple.
