The Purloined Papers
Most disciplinary proceedings charge lawyers with betraying clients; but the profession itself is equally upset when lawyers display excessive zeal on behalf of clients at the expense of the integrity of the legal system.

When her dismissal was upheld on appeal, the lawyer filed three duplicative lawsuits in federal court, ignoring res judicata.
