10-week Suspension Enough for Lawyer Who slept with a Client?


Toronto lawyer Anthony Macri was suspended for two and a half months for having sex with a client and failing to inform his firm.

The case against Macri was outlined in an agreed statement of facts filed at the Law Society Tribunal. As well as being suspended, he was also fined $2,500 and ordered to pay a further $2,000 in costs.

Was the penalty too lenient? What kind of ethical training do Canadian lawyers receive early in their career? What happens if your lawyer is behaving badly?

Employment Lawyer Lior Samfiru covered this controversial topic with host Tasha Kheiriddin on Global News Radio 640 Toronto.
