Joseph Noto, a Bergen County divorce lawyer, wants you to know that a family court judge properly refused to sign a consent order for ex-spouses that he found were trying, with their lawyers, to erase substantial fees owed to prior counsel. The Appellate Division, in Clemente v. Clemente, A-0487-11, agreed with Monmouth County Superior Court Judge Terence Flynn that signing the order would have constituted a “gross dereliction of his judicial responsibilities.” Flynn held that John and Linda Clemente had conspired with their lawyers to violate court rules and to circumvent precedent barring assignment of malpractice claims. He also found the lawyers at fault and vowed to lodge an ethics grievance against them.
