Red herring alert
Reporter: In Kratz's case, [Kenosha defense lawyer Terry] Rose says remember, the domestic violence victim was a witness to the original crime. The client was the State of Wisconsin.It doesn't matter.
The Wisconsin rules of professional conduct provision SCR 20:08.4(i), which even Kratz acknowledged to the OLR may be in play, refers to harassment "in connection with the lawyer's professional activities."
It is not limited to lawyer/client relations. Indeed, it would be absurd if it was so limited, and could never find application to district attorneys, DoJ lawyers, or any others whose clients were the State.
Why didn't Colleen Henry get this assignment? She's a lawyer.
