Costs - Physician's Report.


June 11, 1987


It is not improper for an attorney to pay for a follow-up letter from a

physician on behalf of a client as long as the client remains ultimately

responsible for the cost. Whether or not the attorney is responsible for

payment of the bill is beyond the purview of the committee. [ DR:5-103(B

); LE Op. 820]
