A Connecticut-licensed attorney ensnared by a nationwide ethics complaint moved to dismiss his case last week after a six-and-a-half hour hearing before a state ethics commission. The decision on the motion could impact more than 550 lawyers in 47 states who have done or are doing business with Total Attorneys, which helps connect consumers to lawyers through Web sites. Attorney Zenas Zelotes filed grievances against all of those lawyers, arguing that Total Attorneys' method has lawyers paying for referrals.
