Judicial Watch Files Bar Complaint Against Christine Blasey Ford’s Lawyers

It is hard to believe that Christine Blasey Ford did not know about it the offer.  Did she live under a rock without any form of news?

One of two things happened here: 1. She perjured herself by saying her lawyers never told her.
or 2. Her lawyers committed malpractice, which is grounds for disbarment.

Here’s their conundrum. If Ford’s lawyers say they informed her, then she gave false evidence. If they don’t, they are in breach of an ethical rule. I love it. Pop the popcorn and stay tuned.

Trending: Scientists Admit “Math Error” Led To Alarming Results In Major Global Warming Study

Daily Wire:

Conservative political action group Judicial Watch announced Friday that it has filed a complaint to the Board of Professional Responsibility of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals against the lawyers who represented Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford.

The government watchdog says that lawyers Debra S. Katz, Lisa J. Banks, and Michael R. Bromwich “violat[ed] the rules of professional responsibility” in their representation of Ford in her testimony against then-Supreme Court Kavanaugh by failing to inform her that the Senate Judiciary Committee had offered to meet her at the place of her choosing and hear her testimony in private rather than having to fly across the country and go through the pain of a public testimony.

The group argues that this violates the District of Columbia Rules of Professional Conduct:

Rule l.4(a) – A lawyer shall keep a client reasonably informed about the status of a matter and promptly comply with reasonable requests for information.

Rule 1.4(b) – A lawyer shall explain a matter to the extent reasonably necessary to permit the client to make informed decisions regarding the representation.

Judicial Watch’s complaint comes a little over two weeks after an Oct. 2 letter by the Senate Judiciary Committee suggesting that by failing to inform Ford of the committee’s offer, her legal team might have violated the bar association’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct, which “require a lawyer to consult with his or her client about the means to be used to accomplish the client’s objectives—including informing the client of settlement offers.” More

So the big question here is: Will her lawyers throw her under the bus marked “perjury” to save themselves? Comment below and let us know your thoughts.
