    Default How to Disqualify the Other Party's Lawyer

    My question involves court procedures for the state of: FL

    Would a motion to disqualify be justified if the lawyer representing the defendants was the former officer of one of the corporations during the time period in which the case is based and is the spouse of one of the individual defendants? The lawyer in question actually has matter information to the case and most likely would be called to provide testimony and could be added as a defendant if the facts support it.

    If your attorney intends to call this person as a witness, your attorney can bring a motion to disqualify on that basis. If you don't have an attorney, it would be sensible for you to be at least consulting one.

    Please post a question in ONE FORUM only.

    You can't disqualify an attorney for the other party. It seems a ittle late to name the attorney as a defendant, but even if you did that wouldn't change anything. The attorney could be called as a witness. I don't see anything you can do to decide counsel for the other party. You are dreaming, especially if you don't have an attorney which is what it sounds like.
