The Washington Post reports that Pakistani “police officials, judges, litigants and witnesses say they have become increasingly fearful of marauding lawyers in their trademark black pants, coats and ties.”

There’s a good summary of the story on the ABA Journal website, which recounts an anecdote by a police officer who says lawyers pummelled him because he refused to share a confidential hospital report with them. The piece also explains how there have been reports of at least 15 instances of alleged “hooliganism” and “high-handedness” by lawyers in Pakistan this year.
