This program includes a discussion of the ethics involved in disqualification motions and the standards by which motions can and should be brought, and should not be brought, along with the governing patchwork regimes of ethics standards to regulate attorney conduct that apply. This program is an assessment of these standards in conjunction with the one of the most famous and brutal civil litigation disputes ever -- the serial deportation of Harry Bridges.
