Supreme Court weighs application of entire controversy doctrine in legal malpractice cases:
The Supreme Court heard oral argument last week on whether the entire controversy doctrine applies to dismiss a legal malpractice claim filed three years after a judgment was received in a fee collection matter. In the matter of Dimitrakopoulous v. Borrus, Goldin, Docket No. 080357, the NJSBA argued as amicus curiae that the entire controversy doctrine requires dismissal of the plaintiffs’ claims that their attorneys committed malpractice because it was not raised in the collection action. The brief was written by Diana C. Manning and Peter J. Gallagher. Manning argued the matter before the Supreme Court on behalf of the association.
