New Jersey's Committee on Attorney Advertising held a hearing Monday to decide whether legal ethics rules were violated by the placing of a lawyer's advertisement on the windshield of a rape victim's car. The victim, known in court papers as K.D., claims an orange flyer from Fred Zemel's Newark, N.J., firm appeared on her car in February 2007 -- two months after the sexual assault occurred. It touted the firm's services to anyone who had been the victim of "rape and assault in your building or apartment."
