Internet online anonymity didn't shield lawyer from ethical obligations
Rochester, New York attorney Nicole Black has posted an item on her LawBlog Sui Generus summarizing a decision by the Supreme Court of Louisiana, In re: Salvadore R. Perricone, No. 2018-B-1233, in which the court considered whether Perricone violated his ethical obligations as an attorney as a result of anonymous comments that he posted online between 2007-2014. Some of the comments related to trials for which he was the prosecuting attorney and others related to trials that his colleagues were prosecuting. The court concluded that the appropriate sanction for Perricone’s conduct was disbarment.
