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]


    Committee Opinion April 10, 1986
