The irony
After all the hoopla about the Trevor Law Group and all the trash-talk about lawyers filing UCL cases at the drop of a hat, now a group of lawyers is facing a malpractice lawsuit for not bringing a UCL claim. Yesterday, in Janik v. Rudy, Exelrod & Zieff, ___ Cal.App.4th ___ (Jun. 22, 2004), the Court of Appeal reinstated a legal malpractice case against attorneys who successfully prosecuted their clients' statutory claims to a $90 million jury verdict. According to the court, the attorneys should have pursued a UCL claim as well. Now, just how does the court think the plaintiffs' bar will react to that decision? It certainly won't result in fewer UCL filings. Both the Recorder and the Daily Journal have articles about the case this morning: "Win $90 Million for Client—Face Malpractice Suit"; "Malpractice Suit Lives On."
