I believe this one requires more of a background in ethical misconduct.
I was sued over a loan that was set up as a scam between my business partner and his lawyer to take over my business. He got his own lawyer to sue him, me and the business on behalf of his brother. My business partner and the attorney then proceeded to try to default the business and my business partner tried to deny the business legal representation on several occasions in the hearings. I am trying to defend myself without an attorney.
You say: I am trying to defend myself without an attorney. I would call this: "Mistake no. 1" , soon to be followed by nos., 2, 3, 4 etc.... Defending a business law suit is tricky. That said, the lawyer could be subject to a disciplinary action by the CA State Bar Association for, among other things representing a client while having a conflict of interest. http://www.calbar.ca.gov/Attorneys/LawyerRegulation/FilingaComplaint.aspx
If you feel this lawyer has violated cannons of ethics http://www.law.cornell.edu/ethics/aba/mcpr/MCPR.HTM by engaging in a fraudulent law suit in which you are an injured party, you can file a complaint with the bar. But that will not stop the lawsuit from proceeding. You might be able to file a motion to disqualify the attorney, but those are highly technical and you should have an attorney advise you if that is appropriate in your situation. Than you for contacting Pearl.com/Just Answer with your question. If you need clarification, please send a reply. I will be away from the computer until 8:00 a.m. your time.

- Regarding your comment about the fraudulent suit. What happens if both my business partner and business partners brother were extensively working with each other on the bench through the trial of the lawsuit in order to get a judgement against my business partner and my company?
