If you file an accusation against an attorney in the Supreme Court who stole money from you and several other "clients" (and then said attorney tried to sue said "clients" for more money) is that considered a litigation for the purpose of vexatious litigation statutes? Why or why not? I thought the part of the purpose of an accusation is to make public an attorney's bad behavior?It was not an original action filed in Supreme Court. The attorney tried to sue 6 clients in small claims court for "fees". Complaints were filed with State bar by several people, and some were heeded and some were not. The persons whose complaints were not heeded by the State Bar, are given the option to file an accusation against the attorney in the California Supreme Court, as direct by the California State Bar. So I did know what I was doing, and did not do anything improper per the instructions of the State Bar. In short, if the State Bar decides to not take action against the attorney from a complaint they receive, they send you a letter stating that you have 30 days or so to file an accusation with the Supreme Court.
