SO FUNNY. i hope trump sues all the lawyers who wouldn't take his case

Fox News Radio ran an interview that said Trump may be able to sue the hundreds of law firms that have refused to take him as a client for professional misconduct. How would refusing to serve as Trump's lawyer be actionable?
Question: Fox News Radio ran an interview that said Trump may be able to sue the hundreds of law firms that have refused to take him as a client for professional misconduct. How would refusing to serve as Trump's lawyer be actionable?

Do you have a link to that interview, questioner?

Frankly it seems to be nonsense as Cliff G. points out there are a number that attorneys can decline to represent clients. In Trumpís case they can require that he provide a substantial downpayment to ensure that heíll meet his financial obligations, and even that would probably prevent him from being taken on as a client.

Letís say for the speculation that he did sue and one of the cases reached the point of discovery: Any law firm of substance would savage Trump there and they would be able to prove that nearly any reason that they gave for their refusal would be legal and above board. They wouldnít settle with him out of court as there would be no reason to do so. Theyíd shred him and what limited credibility that he had left.

Just FYI: If you see it or hear it on a Fox News station, unless it comes with extensive references itís safe to presume itís incorrect or untrue
