In the comments section of the article, Kevin Kestner raised a telling point:
Rule 4-3.6 Trial Publicity - (a) A lawyer who is participating or has participated in the investigation or litigation of a matter shall not make an extrajudicial statement that the lawyer knows or reasonably should know will be disseminated by means of public communication and will have a substantial likelihood of materially prejudicing an adjudicative proceeding in the matter. I would hope the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel would apply this rule to this lawyer, it seems like a textbook example of what NOT to do. If Fr. Chiang is guilty he wil be determined as such by a jury of his peers, trying your civil case in public during the pendency of the criminal case is nothing more than an ambulance chasing, jury pool contaminating move.
