We recently had to fire an employee for cause. After we sent an email to the former employee asking for a password to an account that belonged to the business, we received a reply from a person who represented themselves as the lawyer for the employee. The content of the email was:
Have your attorney contact me to discuss. I’ve instructed my client not to discuss this matter with you directly.
The sender of this email is a sitting county judge in my state (Texas). Google tells me that sitting judges are not ethically allowed to practice law here. Should I file a bar complaint?
