Attorney suing Douglas County school board asks judge to consider if district’s lawyers violated ethics rules

The Denver Gazette: The lawyer suing the Douglas County school board raised “serious ethical concerns” about the legal team representing the district in a court filing this week, and he asked the judge presiding over the lawsuit to consider if his counterparts had violated their ethical duties. 

Attorney Steve Zansberg told a Douglas County judge Tuesday that details of the case had been misrepresented in legal filings by the board’s legal team from Hall and Evans and that board members who testified before that judge in late February had been untruthful in their statements.

He pointed to recordings of conversations that he alleges contradict testimony given by board members. The defense team had access to those recordings before those members testified in court last month, Zansberg argued, and should’ve notified the court that their statements were untruthful.
