ISB Commission Takes Aim at Bullying
(Posted Oct. 29, 2015) — Idaho State Bar Commission President Tim Gresback recently began a discussion about improper behavior by attorneys, specifically, bullying. In three “President’s Message” columns published in The Advocate, he explored what bullying is and how it is affecting our profession. Tim received more than 50 personal comments from members of the bar. Among those, we have selected five that exemplify their tone and content. Those five authors agreed to have their comments published in the November/ December issue. They also appear below as “Letters.”
The Idaho State Bar Commission will be presenting a free CLE before each Resolution Roadshow meeting to address the issue of bullying, which is sure to engage even more members of the bar. Below are the columns that sparked the discussion.
- Gresback – August President’s Message: “Confessions of a Recovering Bully”
- Gresback – September President’s Message: “Are Bullying Lawyers Psychopaths?”
- Gresback – November/December President’s Message: “Deposition Bullies, Witness Coaching and Discovery Abuse”
- Letters – A collection of five letters to the editor on bullying
- Managing a Bully Without Becoming One – A free CLE during the Roadshow
