How likely an attorney will start a frivolous lawsuit pro

How likely an attorney will start a frivolous lawsuit pro bono in order to gain career benefit (promotion, included in certain organizations with legal marketing nature/feature, resume etc.)? Why some attorneys say on their professional profiles that they've done multiple pro bono cases among several organizations, but there is no single review (no good review, no bad review) about them on the internet. Thanks.

You have opined that a Legal harassment lawsuit is only

You have opined that a Legal harassment lawsuit is only applicable in situations where the victim belongs to a protected class such as gays, minorities, trans genders, etc.,You have said nothing about the personal "aspects" of the harasser.What if both the bully and the victim are gay? In the case at bar, the perpetrator appears to be a self loathing gay person who bulled another gay person.So the very specific legal question becomes:Do any of the personal details about the harasser matter?Can the harasser argue that as a gay person, regardless of his actions, he cannot be accused of harassment of another gay person. I don't think so.How say you?

I am not sure if you can see my prior Qs re: Filing an

I am not sure if you can see my prior Qs re: Filing an ethics complaint against an IL lawyer, but briefly I am a member of a NC registered non-profit professional society. In 2015 the officers and board of the organization went rogue and did a really bad thing; an unlawful thing. An IL lawyer helped them with the effect of defrauding the membership.I have endeavored to file an ethics complaint against the lawyer. But my fellow members want me to drop the complaint because the lawyer has said that he will bill the organization for the time he has to spend dealing with the complaint, which has basically intimidated my colleagues. If find the lawyer's threat to be chilling, and that on its face cannot be ethical.So my Q is what do state bar ethics commissions generally provide for in terms of allowing lawyers to bill complainants, especially the IL bar in particular? Is the lawyer's threat with the effect of chilling a complaint an actionable ethics violation?
