Every so often, SNL Gets it Right: Ask Gloria Allred

SNL's writers (perhaps working without adult supervision) have video-pilloried NPD "victim" Gloria Allred in the embedded video below.

As my post title states, occasionally, SNL gets it right. A famous but now banned skit from 2008 skewered Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Georgi Soros, and Herbie Sandler for their roles in helping along the collapse of the economy. Purportedly, threats of suit by Sandler's lawyers induced NBC to yank the skit.

Back to Gloria Allred

2 Open Questions:

(1) Did Gloria Allred violate her ethical duty to her client by encouraging Nicky Diaz Santillan to put herself in legal jeopardy by appearing on national television admitting to her undocumented alien status and fraudulent use of identity documents?

(2) If the answer to question #1 is yes, does the Disciplinary Board of the California Bar have standing to punish Allred absent a complaint by Diaz?
