Proffessional ethics

While defending his client a lawyer filed a petition containing a particular commitment to a fact. Subsequently in a connected case, before a different court ,defending the same client another advocate filed a  statement that was exactly opposite of what the earlier advocate filed. Can the second lawyer can be sued in court or case can be referred to state advocates association?


Will any senior member advise me?

Legal action part of it, it is ok. What is the amount of damage you are done by that statement also can be well demonstrated in the complaint against him. Also you may withdraw the said false statement from the Court concerned (before any adverse order is passed against you) citing that your lawyer without consulting you had filed the same on your behalf.

Usually the facts are stated on oath by the client and not advocate.It is the client who misguided both the advocates,why advocate should be made party ?

Dear All,

Niranjan has given amply clear clarification and I concur with him.

Best Regards
