17-Fraud on the Tribunal

A lawyer who has been "informed" that a client and a witness perjured themselves in a matter being considered by a federal administrative law judge must reveal the perjury. [The Bar concludes that the perjury is "clearly established," but the summary does not indicate that the client has acknowledged perjury.]
