Having worked with lawyers for the past 10 years, I strongly agree with reviving this rule. There are far more snakes in the profession that act unethically and against Bar standards of professionalism while getting away with it then lawyers who have good intentions. I've had counsel use all manner of delay tactics when their clients are clearly guilty, while wasting the Court's time and resources which is funded by the taxpayer. There may be a million cases out there across state and federal courts that should have never been filed. The profession is wrought with greed, which I presume comes in part from the exponential debts incurred from attending law school (costs now exceed $200k in many instances). Frivolous lawsuits are just the tip of the iceberg in the problems that undermine the American judiciary. No lawyer is worth $250 an hour. But that's the going rate these days...because lawyers become career politicians who make the rules.
