The New Year is a good time for a good marriage resolution, like how about if we just try to get along. Today there are two cases involving a right to privacy.
In the first Anthony Pellicano was sentenced to 15 years in prison for invading the privacy of certain individuals. He along with 6 other defendants were charged in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California with allegations including threats, blackmail, illegal wiretapping, paying bribes to public officials and racketeering conspiracy. The other six defendants include a public official, a law enforcement officer or the LAPD (a member of the dept since 1974 and a detective since 1984) and a law enforcement officer with the Beverly Hills PD.
What is interesting about the 60 page-110 count indictment are who the customer list included. On page 7 of the indictment the customer base for this illegal enterprise included lucrative clients, entertainment celebrities and executives, attorneys and law firms. Law firms and attorneys?
Breaking the law isn’t a part of our ethical rules. I wonder what firms and lawyers were involved in this enterprise and whether it will lead to ethical complaints.
