Misrepresentation - Answers to Interrogatories.
November 18, 1985
It is improper for an attorney who has executed answers to
interrogatories and who has represented to opposing counsel that the
answers may be treated as if they were signed under oath by the attorney's
client, to include in said interrogatories answers which are false. [ DR:
