Prenda Law ‘porno-trolling’ extortion scheme: Should the two lawyers be disbarred as a warning against malpractice?

  • Malpractice is a serious problem.

    It is no secret that malpractice is a common thing in many different professions, and often goes unpunished. Events such as this should be met with more severe consequences instead of a slap on the wrist and a small fine which the individual(s) can easily pay off. Being disbarred would hold much more weight.

  • Yes, law malpractice is not different than medical malpractice.

    Lawyers, like doctors, are paid exorbitant prices because they are highly trained professionals who handle extremely sensitive material. The failure to demonstrate professionalism in the field of law usually has significant consequences for those who are wronged. These consequences are usually very expensive, sometimes resulting in a tangle of legal woes that are far-reaching. They should be punished, not to make a point, but because it is the right thing to do.

  • Lawyers go unpunished.

    Lawyers commit malpractice all the time. Unfortunately, the people policing lawyers are other lawyers. These lawyers in charge of ethics complaints don't do anything about it, because they don't want the public to supposedly lose faith in lawyers. Ultimately, it is the public that loses in the end. These lawyers should be disbarred as a warning to others.

  • I think so

    Those lawyers set up a scheme to lure people into downloading copyrighted pornographic material (to which they obtained copyrights through sham entities) and then filed lawsuits and basically extorted money from people who fell into their trap. They used the courts to fraudulently steal money from people to the tune of $6 million. So this seems pretty worthy of disbarment.
