78-Communicating with an Employee of a Corporate Adversary

A lawyer may not communicate with a corporate opponent's employees who are the corporation's "alter ego" (including store managers). [Rule 4.2 Comment [4] adopts the "control group" analysis for determining the ethical propriety of communications with employees of an adverse organization.]
