I may be missing something, but for an attorney to be held liable for given legal advice, doesn't an attorney-client privileged have to be established? Is posting on board contacting a representing client? And posting anonymously on a blog an act of unlicensed practice of law? Surely, we can think of examples that cross the line, but it seems most of the posts have been commentary and snarks. I disagree that these scenarios are pretty clearly addressed by the MCPR/Model Rules. There are a ton of novel issues that a court/sanctions board might face. I think this would make for an interesting case (and I am sure similar cases have already happen or will happen soon.). The scenario that is clearly addressed by the MCPR/Model Rules (and a ton of case law) is the one outlined by the doctor’s letter—a fee dispute. But as others have said, more facts are needed.
