Ms. P was injured in an automobile accident in 2001. After her accident, Ms. P hired Attorney David Rowe to represent her. Mr. Rowe filed a lawsuit in 2004 on her behalf but failed to prosecute the suit. In December of 2005, the trial court dismissed Ms. P’s lawsuit for failure to prosecute after issuing a notice of the impending dismissal. Mr. Rowe failed to take appropriate action to protect Ms. P’s claims. Instead, Mr. Rowe refilled the lawsuit in August of 2007, not realizing that the statute of limitations had already run on Ms. P’s claims. For unknown reasons, the defense attorney did not notice the statute of limitations had run and answered the lawsuit. Amazingly, Mr. Rowe failed to prosecute the second lawsuit just as he had the first one. The trial court dismissed the second lawsuit for failure to prosecute after issuing a notice of impending dismissal. The case settled for a confidential amount at mediation.
