Hi,

I have recently discovered a lawsuit that is still PENDING, filed in 96' another plaintiff against the same man I plan to name as defendant in my future suit.

I do not know the plaintiff in that case, However, The actions filed are very simular to actions involved in my case.

I have managed to locate the plaintiff's phone number. But, hestiate to call. I would very much like to talk with him regarding his case and parallels that may exsist.

However, I am not sure if this would be an ethical move. Nor am I sure if this would be detrimental in some way. My case involves negligence, fraud and false reporting committed AGAINST me, resulted in my arrest and false imprisonment.

I have not hired an attorney yet. I am just trying to round up as much information as possible to present to the attorney.

Are there any problems anyone can for see in contacting this guy???

Thanks
:D

My response:

There's nothing unethical about what you propose to do, unless you're an attorney looking to steal a client. The plaintiff's information in the litigation case is public information anyway, i.e., you can go to the courthouse, pull the entire court file and review the same. In summary, you are under no legal ethics obligation whatsoever and, if the plaintiff wishes to speak with you about his case, he may do so - - although, since he wouldn't know who you are, it would be prudent of him to refer you to his attorney for a chat.
