Celebrity Attorney Gloria Allred Sued for Legal Malpractice

Celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred has been sued by an ex-client, Kyle Hunter, for Allred's representation of Hunter in a discrimination claim against CBS. Hunter, a weatherman, retained Allred to represent him against CBS for discriminating against him in favor of younger, more attractive meteorologists. Hunter's malpractice claim against Allred alleges that she failed to interview key witnesses and did not disclose to Hunter that Allred was concurrently working with CBS to develop a legal drama based on Allred's life, which Hunter alleges was a conflict of interest. Hunter's further alleges that Allred's conduct and omissions damaged him to the tune of $1 million and an impaired reputation. Allred and her firm have denied the allegations of malpractice.
