Associate Faces Legal Ethics Case

Associate Faces Legal Ethics Case re Claimed Ex Parte Emails with Worker's Comp Arbitrator

The Bureau of Workers' Compensation recently allowed lawyers the ability to email letters to a Judge as a PDF attachment. In the "old" days, we could have something hand delivered, faxed, mailed or sent by overnight delivery to a Judge.

Associate Faces Legal Ethics Case re Claimed Ex Parte Emails with Worker's Comp Arbitrator

The Bureau of Workers' Compensation recently allowed lawyers the ability to email letters to a Judge as a PDF attachment. In the "old" days, we could have something hand delivered, faxed, mailed or sent by overnight delivery to a Judge. In the alternative, if you had an extremely good relationship with the Judge and/or their secretary, you might be able to get permission to email something to their work email (provided that you copied in opposing counsel).

With that being said, here is an old article from ABAJournal.com that reminds us that emails sent to a Judge should be treated like any other communication that is sent to a Judge. The golden rule remains the same, i.e. no ex parte conversations, copy in opposing counsel. It appears that these two forgot this concept.
