With the proliferation of online directories and search engines, attorneys’ names can remain connected in cyberspace to their former firms for months, even years. Rarely, does it become the subject of litigation.
A former Del Sole & Del Sole attorney, however, is suing the New Haven and Wallingford, Conn., defense firm for allegedly continuing to list his name, biographical information and e-mail address on its Web site long after his June 2004 termination. Robert P. Murphy claims that, when he went to open his own firm, the Berlin Law Offices, in nearby Berlin, Conn., the following February, he discovered his name had not been removed from Del Sole & Del Sole’s Web site. On March 31, 2005, Murphy claims he sent a letter to the firm asking it to take his name off the site, but it allegedly did not respond to the request.
