Illinois Public Defender’s Blogging Lands Her In Hot Water

There is an interesting article in the ABA Journal’s Law News Now illustrating how attorneys must exercise caution when using technological devices such as blogs, social networks, etc.  According to the article, a former Illinois public defender blogged about her client’s in such a way as to reveal their identities and reveal that she did not cure a client’s fraud upon the court.  She also openly criticized certain judges, including calling one an “a-hole.”

Her blog is referred to in the article, but unfortunately there is no direct link.  However, here is the link to the ABA’s article for those of you who may be interested.  http://www.abajournal.com/weekly/blogging_assistant_pd_accused_of_revealing_secrets_of_little-disguised_clie

Add this to the growing list of instances of attorney goofs, gaffs, and outright abuses of information technology.
