Lawyers in Texas are using an online tool to protect themselves against lawsuits they say are a scam.
Lawyers in Texas say they’re using an electronic tool called the Texas Lawyer’s Choice to block lawyers from filing lawsuits online that they say involve people they’ve never met.
Lawyer Kyle H. Chauvin, a lawyer who handles criminal defense cases, says he’s using the tool to stop lawyers from suing people he’s never met and not just people he works with.
Houvain says the tool can be used by lawyers to protect them against defamation lawsuits, false arrest lawsuits, wrongful convictions lawsuits, and to stop lawsuits that are filed after an event like Hurricane Harvey.
A lawsuit is usually filed after someone has been charged with a crime.
When someone is charged with an offense, a court can issue a warrant to arrest someone who committed the crime and a judge can issue the warrant for that person.HOUVIN SAYS IT IS NOT ABOUT PRIVACY”We do this for the protection of our clients, and the protection is a very important part of it,” Chauvin said.
“If someone does something to harm someone’s reputation, it’s very important that they’re brought to justice.
But if they are doing something that is a bad thing, and that harm was not their fault, then they have the right to sue them and have it dismissed.”
The tool was created by an anonymous creator and is free to use.
HOUVINE says the purpose of the tool is to protect lawyers who are trying to protect their clients from lawsuits.HUNTSMAN: Lawyers have sued, and they’ve lost, in court and the Texas law that is used is the law that the Supreme Court has ruled, in a very clear case, that this is unconstitutional.
So they say, ‘Well, we’re using this tool to get rid of this lawsuit and we’re not using it to protect people.’
I think that’s an interesting argument to make.
But we have to be careful.
This tool is an important tool that we have for protecting ourselves.HENRIQUE: Lawyers in other states have been using similar tools to block lawsuits from online.
The American Bar Association, for example, has a website where lawyers can request that a lawyer file a lawsuit on behalf of a client.
The American Bar is trying to fight back against lawsuits that it says are being filed online.
In a letter to lawyers in California, the association said it is not only concerned with the use of the online tool, but the potential for future lawsuits being filed on behalf by lawyers that have no business being there.
“We believe it would be harmful to the integrity of the profession if the use or dissemination of the Texas legal tool were to lead to further litigation against lawyers who, for some reason, had never been in the profession,” the letter said.
Lawmakers in several states are investigating the use and misuse of the tools.
A few states have banned lawsuits against online services.
