Lawyer fails to mention client's death

In Minnesota, a lawyer has been suspended for a year after he conveniently forgot to mention that his client was living-challenged. (Dead.) The man had hired the lawyer to sue a credit agency that mistakenly reported him as being dead. Only the man died after the suit was filed. The company was all set to settle for $19,000.

After the credit agency agreed to settle the case for $19,000, the man’s wife signed the papers, prompting the company to ask if her husband was dead. Lyons responded, “Yes – HOW IRONIC.”
