Your client, Justin King, has informed you that before leaving Chicago on the date of the accident, he met friends for pizza and beer. He informed you that he â€œhad quite a fewâ€ before getting on his Harley. Because he was unconscious immediately after the accident, no tests were conducted to determine if he was under the influence at that time.
Subsequently, you have learned that his toxicology reports from Paxton Medical Center were erroneously destroyed by the hospital as part of its standard document retention policy. Justin has told you that he intends to lie in the upcoming litigation if he is asked if he had any alcohol prior to the accident. How should Justinâ€™s legal team handle this situation?
Draft a one- to two-page descriptive analysis of this ethical dilemma. Identify and analyze three applicable ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct. These are available on the American Bar Association (ABA) website.
