Whistle-Blower, Attorney Alan Phillips, Sent Back to Jail for THIRD Time and License Suspended for Refusing to Breach Attorney-Client Privilege
After a hearing at Wake County Courthouse on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, Attorney Alan Phillips was was ordered back to jail for a third time, and his license was suspended for at least until his next hearing on June 24, 2019. The judge can do this up to a cumulative year in jail. So this harassment of Attorney Phillips could continue for a long time.
Alan has been already been jailed on Thursday, May 9, 2019, and on and Monday, April 29, 2019, for 48 hours each, for “contempt of court” after he refused to breach attorney client privilege.
The North Carolina State Bar is demanding that Phillips turn over years of privileged client files in a retaliatory fishing expedition lawsuit, after he filed a complaint against the bar for alleged misconduct; the Bar internally dismissed Phillips’ complaint and a subsequent follow-up complaint. Incidentally, OAMF filed a complaint that was also internally dismissed.
Alan has done nothing illegal, the NC State Bar has not provided the court any evidence of wrongdoing on Alan’s part, and this entire lawsuit is a fishing expedition to try and discover some wrongdoing on Alan’s part in an effort to silence him and/or retaliate against him for filing a complaint against the Bar.
Ohio Advocates for Medical Freedom, on behalf of health freedom organizations across the country and their hundreds of thousands of followers, is demanding that both North Carolina State Governor Roy Cooper and the North Carolina Supreme Court pursue independent investigations into the State Bar’s misconduct, as required by prior legal precedence.
