Yep. Still an ethics violation.
Two ways, probably. First, it relates to a client representation, and that's definitely not allowed. Unless of course this alleged Facebook post didn't disclose anything
about the representation (not even the fact that they were involved in mediation, for example).
Second, depending on how false the positions were, that might be it's own ethical violation. Lawyers can't use deception as a bargaining tactic.
There wasn't any deception.
I posted the real numbers.
They thought it was fake, and that our guys thought they had the real ones.
Our guys thought they thought it was real, and that our guys thought it was fake.
So you see, what everyone thought was real was actually real except what was fake because they thought it was fake. It didn't make any difference because everyone thought the other side had what they actually had but none of it was real and that was what everyone thought. Just my buddy and I had a good laugh.
