A Temple University Beasley School of Law professor is resisting efforts to collect a $156,436 judgment in New Jersey for receiving an improper referral fee and the unauthorized practice of law in a medical malpractice case.
Frank McClellan, professor emeritus at Temple University’s Beasley School of Law, was ordered by Middlesex County Superior Court Judge Thomas McCloskey to pay that amount to Cindy Johnson, who consulted him about bringing a medical malpractice claim on behalf of her late husband. McClellan was also ordered on Jan. 3 to pay Johnson’s legal bills for collection of the improper referral fees, an amount to be determined later. In addition, a separate legal malpractice claim brought by Johnson against McClellan is pending.
