Jim Thomson and Dustin Charters successfully defended an attorney and law firm in a malpractice action by obtaining summary judgment. The plaintiff claimed the attorney and law firm made misrepresentations in a prior litigation where the plaintiff was also a party. The attorney and law firm argued that the litigation privilege protects attorneys from claims arising in prior lawsuits. The court agreed, holding the past litigation barred plaintiff’s claims because the attorney and firm were acting within the scope of their representation and solely in their client’s interest.
