Case Summary

2984 An attorney owes a client a duty of reasonable care, and the question of whether that duty was breached by failing to opt the client out of a class action is one of fact for a jury; damage resulting from an employer's fraud may be the basis of an employee's tort action and, if negligence by the employee's attorney caused the employee to lose the possibility of bringing such an action, may be recoverable as compensatory damages in a malpractice action against the attorney; punitive damages that a client would have recovered had an attorney not been negligent in handling litigation are not recoverable as compensatory damages in a malpractice action against the attorney.
