SD Supreme Court Hears Legal Malpractice Case

SD Supreme Court Hears Legal Malpractice Case
PIERRE, SD -

A dispute that began with the placement of beehives and evolved into an issue of legal malpractice has reached the South Dakota Supreme Court.

Justices listened to initial arguments in a final appeal Monday.

The case started in 2007 with a business lawsuit over the use and registration of private property for beehives. Three beekeepers shared lawyers. When the attorneys came up with a settlement, one of the beekeepers didn't agree to comply with it.

That beekeeper filed a legal malpractice suit against his original lawyers.

Those attorneys won the case in a Roberts County circuit court. One argues that this case indulges "buyer's remorse" after settlements.

The beekeeper's current attorney says it's not about do-overs, but about justice.

Both sides also debated the state's definition of good legal representation.
