Perjured Testimony — Court-Appointed Attorney.
August 25, 1980
A court-appointed attorney has an ethical duty to report to the appropriate authorities the true financial status of his client regardless of the source of his information that the client can afford private counsel. However, the attorney must first call upon his client to reveal the truth to the authorities. [See II: DR:4-101(D)(2).]
