IN: Goshen attorney dumps client files in the trash
Justin Leighty of The Elkhart Truth reports that confidential client files from attorney Joe Lehman’s office were just dumped in the trash. The files contained personal and financial information, and were disposed of during a move the office was making. What’s somewhat dumbfounding is that the attorney claimed he didn’t know that there was any personal data in the files.
Whether the attorney will face any ethics charges for inadequate protection of confidential records is unknown.
