Delaware Supreme Court on Rule 11 Violations

In my most recent ethics column for The Bencher, I reviewed a recent Delaware Supreme Court decision that announced a new standard that will be followed in Delaware when a trial judge believes that Rule 11, or a rule of legal ethics, has been violated. The article is available at this link. In a prior ethics column, available at this link, I highlighted the trial court’s opinion in the same case. (I am aware that federal courts and other states do not share the same views in terms of the role that the trial court plays when there has been a violation of legal ethics.)
