Rule 4.4. Respect for Rights of Third Persons.
In representing a client, a lawyer shall not use means that have no substantial purpose other than to embarrass, delay, or burden a third person, nor use methods of obtaining evidence that violate the legal rights of such a person. (SCO 1123 effective July 15, 1993)
Responsibility to a client requires a lawyer to subordinate the interests of others to those of the client, but that responsibility does not imply that a lawyer may disregard the rights of third persons. It is impractical to catalogue all such rights, but they include legal restrictions on methods of obtaining evidence from third persons.
