Ethics question: "I am a Pennsylvania lawyer, but because of my wife’s job change, I live in another state where she works. I still have my Pennsylvania practice. Mostly, I do it by Zoom, telephone, fax and email. If I have to appear in court, I then come back and do so. Is there anything illegal about that?"

Ethics Forum: Questions and Answers on Professional Responsibility | The Legal Intelligencer

Ethics question: "I was an expert witness in a professional liability suit against an attorney in the Philadelphia Common Pleas Court. The defendant lawyer was somewhat bizarre during the trial. The jurors had sent notes that they felt threatened by him. The verdict was an odd one finding some fiduciary violations, but no monetary damages. The lawyer then sent the expert witness a threatening letter stating the expert’s testimony was outrageous and unconscionable, and the attorney was not going to let this matter go. Is there any ethical violation here?"

How Philadelphia's Civil Division Is Trying to 'Change the Culture' of When Cases Settle | The Legal Intelligencer

A new First Judicial District program facilitates communication between plaintiffs attorneys and in-housers at the city’s health care systems in the early stages of medical malpractice cases to evaluate whether or not they can reach a settlement.

“The idea now is to try and change the culture of not waiting until time of trial and seeing if we can get the attorneys to settle cases sooner to allow for us to make room for another case. As soon as one settles we can slot in another one,” said Administrative Judge Lisette Shirdan-Harris of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.

Now, as scheduled trial dates lead to more and more complex case settlements, the court is rolling out a new plan to target its medical malpractice inventory.
