Stephanie's Racket - Is It A Conflict of Interest For Rumley To Be City Lawyer While Two of his "clients" Battle it Out?
Rumley MUST Recuse Himself from Law Office of City of Medford for Perception of CONFLICT
The question arises whether lawyers can effectively and ethically represent opposite types of clients — for example, insurance carriers and insurance coverage plaintiffs. The ABA’s Rule of Professional Conduct 1.7 addresses this.
On the one hand, the rule sensibly says that a lawyer cannot serve two parties who are directly adverse in the same matter; it also bars representation “when there is a significant risk that the representation of one or more clients will be materially limited by the lawyer’s responsibilities to another client, a former client or a third person or by a personal interest of the lawyer.”
Yet, the rule also says that a lawyer may represent clients whose interests are opposite if the lawyer “will be able to provide competent and diligent representation to each affected client.”
