“The Rules are different here” was once a tag line used to promote tourism in Florida some years back. This tagline also seems to apply to a prominent legal firm in South Florida.

There is a rumor, as of yet unconfirmed that I am being spammed by an employee of a certain major law firm in South Florida. I am also told that this is being done with the full knowledge and blessing of the owner of the legal firm, who is one of the most well known attorneys in the state. What I cannot understand is why I am the target of this rather odd individual. I have no clue who this person is and this person certainly is not prepared to tell me who she is.

It would be interesting if the owner of the law firm were to either confirm or deny the rumor regarding this individual https://twitter.com/EOS_03 and if this individual is acting on the behalf of the firm as the rumors and tweets seem to indicate.

It is rather disconcerting that, if true, the owner of this legal firm would allow this kind of conduct by one of her senior employees. I am not certain what swearing at someone on twitter accomplishes. I am also at a loss as to why this person thinks I am someone else. There was, until about an hour ago. Someone on twitter that went by @haterofbullies who had issues with other individuals on twitter. Some rather deviant individuals immediately accused me of being behind that twitter account.

In a rash of “tweet and delete” postings on Twitter, I was sworn at and accused of being the owner of the above account. I have also been threatened with uncertain actions by this alleged representative of the legal firm in question.

I am uncertain if the Florida Bar has authority over this kind of conduct of a representative of a legal firm accused of acting on her Employer’s behalf but I expect contacting the Florida bar will answer that question.

BARHEADER

Attorney Discipline Information: The Florida Bar accepts complaints against attorneys, investigates those complaints and prosecutes attorneys who engage in unethical conduct. For individuals who are unsure if a lawyer has acted ethically or who are dissatisfied and wish to consider whether filing a complaint may be appropriate, The Florida Bar operates the Attorney Consumer Assistance Program (ACAP). The ACAP telephone number is toll-free: 1-866-352-0707.

The next question will deal with civil liability and who it is that would be liable.
