A California-based attorney’s out-of-state counsel privileges were revoked by a federal judge in Virginia for his alleged unprofessional conduct and “backdoor attempts” to introduce evidence that ultimately led to a mistrial as he represented the plaintiff in a slip-and-fall case against Outback Steakhouse.

The case proceeded to trial over disputes about Outback’s alleged negligence from the incident in May 2018.
