What Happens When You Try Get A Lawyer

Simone Biles and other Olympic level gymnasts are suing the FBI for $1 billion because the FBI did not follow up on credible evidence regarding sexual abuse by their former team doctor Larry Nassar.  (technically it is an administrative claim not a suit at this point) More power to them.

It is lucky Larry Nasser is a doctor not a lawyer. Good luck finding a lawyer to sue another lawyer for fraud committed in court no matter how good the evidence is against them. 

Here is where the Minnesota Lawyer Referral and Information Service run by the Minnesota Bar Association directed me when I asked for an attorney to file a civil suit against an attorney for fraud upon the court. 

The Lawyer’s Professional Responsibility Board (LPRB) oversees the lawyer’s professional responsibility office, which investigates complaints of alleged lawyer misconduct and prosecutes disciplinary actions against lawyers. To file a complaint call, 651-296-3952.

They also provide a tool to search lawyers licensed to practice in Minnesota to determine whether they have been publicly disciplined or placed on disability status.

Lawyer’s Professional Responsibility Board -

The LPRB is not a court and you do not file suits in it. You submit complaints which in the vast majority of cases are dismissed no matter what the evidence. They are essentially an organization whose function is to shield lawyers from the consequences of their crimes and violations of the Lawyers Rules of Professional Conduct. Their own statistics show they almost never discipline a lawyer and when they do it is almost always after the lawyer has been criminally charged. 

Corruption is so deep and so pervasive within the Minnesota legal system, crime has become an accepted practice.
