The National Law Journal tells the story of Doug Schafer, a Tacoma, Wash. lawyer who blew the whistle on a Superior Court judge after a client gave him information that implicated the judge in a dishonest business deal. "A reasonable person might conclude that Mr. Schafer did a good thing, using information learned from a client to blow the whistle on a dishonest judge. But not in the state of Washington, one of almost 40 states where it is a violation of lawyer ethics to disclose client's confidential communications, even to help provide a remedy to the victim of a client's crime or fraud."
