The Florida Bar has brought ethics charges against Miami attorney Ramon Manuel Rodriguez, accused of knowingly filing and prosecuting a frivolous perjury case against opposing counsel at Lewis Tein.

Rodriguez spent years pursuing his claims that attorneys Guy Lewis and Michael Tein committed fraud against the court during a wrongful death suit against defendants from the Miccosukee Tribe, according to the bar complaint. He made false allegations against the attorneys in proceedings before former Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Ronald Dresnick, then later continued the “frivolous” litigation against Tein and Lewis before the Third District Court of Appeal, the complaint said.

“Respondent pursued his perjury and fraud claims against Lewis and Tein despite the fact that he knew, or should have known, that same were unsupported by competent evidence,” bar counsel Jennifer Falcone wrote in the complaint.
