Lawyers have consistently ranked in the bottom 5th in ‘honest and ethics’ as polled by Gallup since 1976. Yet the prevailing opinion by the WSBA, according to the number of lawyers disciplined for dishonesty and unethical conduct, is that 99% of WSBA lawyers are ‘honest and ethical’. This delusional belief in their own honesty and ethics in the face of statistical fact spanning 40 years to the contrary will never be cured until the legal profession is regulated by outsiders and not other lawyers.
Richard Posner, Judge for the US 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, says, “Moral inbreeding may be as dangerous as biological inbreeding”. There is no better example of moral inbreeding than lawyers-judging-lawyers or judges-judging-judges. The entire legal system needs fresh DNA to offset the abnormalities due to their inbreeding.
