Using terms like “brazen conduct and relentless fraud,” a federal judge on Monday sanctioned attorneys running a BitTorrent copyright lawsuit factory, and recommended federal prosecutors investigate for potential criminal charges.

Los Angeles federal judge Otis D. Wright II said the Prenda Law attorneys’ “moral turpitude” is “unbecoming of an officer of the court.” (.pdf) The judge said the attorneys “fraudulently signed” documents about who owned the rights to sue thousands over the illegal downloading of p0rnographic films.U.S. Judge Prompts Feds To Investigate Trolling Attorneys [wired.com]

“moral turpitude” is “unbecoming of an officer of the court.”

Not wishing to cause any offense to well respected members here who are lawyers, and to whom this does not apply..and who know that I mean that sincerely..

I will not make any generalisations..about other members of the legal profession..

I will merely snurk into my wine..:)

*“moral turpitude”.. I thought it had become a compulsory part of the bar exam in the last 30 years or so..and doubly so for politicians..
