LEO: Threatening Disciplinary Action LE Op. 760
Threatening Disciplinary Action.
April 10, 1986
Even where the sole purpose is an intent to induce settlement of a pending case which otherwise would not be forthcoming, a threat to file motion under FRCP 11 is not the same as a threat to institute disciplinary action as prohibited by DR:7-104 and, therefore, is not a violation of DR:7-104. [DR:7-104]
