CJAC Liability Reform Insider (July 2021) – After being called
out in a scandalous exposé from the L.A. Times in March, the
State Bar of California is now admitting it mishandled its
investigation into hundreds of lawsuits and years of complaints
against famed attorney Tom Girardi.
Moving forward, the bar may implement tools and
processes to better track patterns that could signal
misconduct. The agency is also working to disbar Girardi, who has
been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and reportedly does not plan to
contest the action or practice law again.
