Comments

The video is rather deceptive itself. It says that the students in the 15 cases "have yet to win any of the cases." A more accurate and less misleading way of saying it is "the student have lost many of the cases, yet are appealing."

It is shocking that an ethics professor like Trachtenberg would suggest that plaintiffs in a civil case use the bar disciplinary process to gain an advantage in such cases. The bar disciplinary process is not supposed to be "another way for plaintiffs to prevail" as the video suggests.

I don't remember Trachtenberg saying anything like that in the article. That business about plaintiffs prevailing is just the video.
