State Appellate Court Tosses Former Client's Malpractice Lawsuit: No Transcript Provided for Review
“We, like the trial court, fail to see any unfair or deceptive act perpetuated by Attorney in his representation of Plaintiff when said representation resulted in the dismissal of the claim for damages. While the counter-complaint was initially dismissed, Plaintiff’s re-filing of the claim ultimately resulted in a settlement. The erroneous judgment was also dismissed once the clerk’s clerical error was discovered by the court. The record before this court is simply devoid of any theory through which Plaintiff was harmed by Attorney’s legal representation,” McClarty wrote.
