Allegedly, while representing a client to sue an individual regarding a case of possession or title of a vehicle, the respondent used a fictitious or incorrect case number when he provided copies of pleadings to the credit union that held the loan on the vehicle. Eventually, when the said individual attempted to pay off and obtain the title of the vehicle, her payment wasn’t accepted because of the purported lawsuit despite her knowledge that she has never been served with a lawsuit.
