RPC Rule 4.4 Respect for the Rights of Third Persons
Description: This program will examine the attorney's duty to respect the rights of third persons when dealing with today's technology and increasingly open electronic society. Can the use of personal information available on the internet run afoul of RPC Rule 4.4 when an attorney publicizes that information in litigation or negotiation? Is the same true for personal e-mails sent by a third party to a party to the litigation? Analysis of information gleaned from hidden recorders, GPS tracking devices, and spyware on computers needs to balance the duty to zealously represent clients and the duty to respect the rights of third persons.
