Morgan & Morgan Lawyers Kicked Off Case for Drawing Penis Pics During Depo: U.S. Judge
A U.S. District Judge in Miami has tossed two attorneys from the famed “Morgan & Morgan – For the People” law firm from a case after the opposing counsel complained that, one of the lawyers drew pictures of male genitalia and unashamedly played Angry Birds during depositions, the blogs miaminewtimes.com reports.
Richard Celler and Stacey Schulman, representing a class action complaint against Ventura Limousine & Transportation Services, Inc., were the two lawyers booted from the case. The Limo company allegedly violated the Fair Labors Standard act, and an ex-employee had enlisted the services of the mega law firm, Morgan & Morgan.
According to blogsmiaminewtimes.com, Celler, in addition to drawing pictures of male genitalia and showing them to Schulman, also wrote numerous unprofessional e-mails to the opposing attorneys and unethically communicated with lawyers and defendants on the case .
In the end, Judge Cecilia M. Altonaga decided to not only disqualify Celler and Schulman from the case, but the entire Morgan & Morgan law firm.
