The news is out: [Much of the six-month suspension Fort Lauderdale attorney Tracy Newmark began serving Sunday comes down to lying, according to the referee’s reports of Newmark’s Florida Bar discipline cases. Lying about:
▪ Who she was when she posted on the attorney review site Avvo about the opposing counsel in a case
▪ What she claimed on Avvo that a judge said about that opposing counsel
▪ To the referee about her lying on Avvo (she eventually admitted it)
▪ By filing a motion for attorney’s fees to which she knew she wasn’t legally entitled]
What else is new in the legal profession?
