Your lawyer has sloppy systems that results in the leak of evidence that allows you to obtain a copy of a super-confidential license between two of your bitter rivals. The court says “Oh, well,” or words to that effect. But imposes stronger controls on your future distribution of redacted copies in the remaining pending cases among the parties.
Aren’t you glad it wasn’t your information that the law firm leaked? Then the court would have really cracked down.

Is your lawyer’s malpractice insurer equally charitable?
