Malicious Prosecution Action Against Attorney Dismissed

The United States District Court dismissed a malicious prosecution action against attorney whose client was unsuccessful in underlying litigation against present plaintiffs.  The Court found, as a matter of law, that an attorney owes no duty to the adversaries of his client and, accordingly, the Complaint failed to state a viable cause of action.  The attorney was represented by Attorney Wyatt Hazard.
