UPDATE: On another post, someone asked the following question:
What do you think of the fact that your former client is now suing the attorney and plaintiffs who sued him? I note you did not sign that complaint. Just curious.
My answer to that seems relevant here:
I personally believe that Mr. Ciolli’s suit has merit. I am not licensed in PA, thus my understanding of the PA-specific claims is not exactly highly-educated. Nevertheless, from what I have read, his claims have a strong likelihood of success.
I never understood why Mr. Ciolli was a defendant in the initial action. I’m not sure that the plaintiffs did either. It always seemed to me that they were more interested in hurting Mr. Ciolli and/or holding him hostage in order to extract concessions from Mr. Cohen (the owner of AutoAdmit) than they were interested in vindicating any real legal interests. I personally would have turned in my law license before signing the complaint in Doe v. Ciolli.
As far as me not signing Ciolli’s complaint, yes, that’s true. I am not representing Mr. Ciolli in this matter. The fact that I am not participating in that matter should not imply that I don’t think that it has merit. The PA claims are beyond my expertise, and thus on that front I would lend little to the team.
I would, however, like to see Mr. Ciolli vindicated. What has happened to him was wrong, and I support him in his quest for justice. I just can’t be the man carrying the sword.
