Virginia Judge Rejects Challenge to Attorney Blog Post About Case

By Ross Jurewitz on February 20, 2010

A Virginia judge recently ruled that an attorney blog about eight currently pending wrongful death case did not need to be removed or deleted‚ despite the challenge by the wrongful death defendant‚ a Virginia hospital‚ who brought a Virginia State Bar complaint and an emergency motion before the court to have case documents removed from the plaintiff’s attorney’s blog.

The hospital‚ Sentara Hospitals‚ did not want certain facts about the wrongful death case to become public. However‚ the hospital had created an incident report which contained these facts and turned over the incident report to plaintiff’s lawyer. The lawyer‚ Avery Waterman‚ of Newport News‚ Virginia‚ blog about the case and the facts contained in the incident report.

The court ruled that the blog post could stand in that the attorney was free to post whatever you wanted regarding a case here in the court declined to make any judgment whether the post violated the attorney’s ethical or professional conduct.

You can read the entire opinion from the court on Virginia medical malpractice attorney Ben Glass’s website.
