Lewis Tein. vs Miccosukee covers the saga of news, sanctions, and court orders surrounding the legal battles between attorneys Michael Tein and Guy Lewis and the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians and its attorneys; Ramon Rodriguez, Jose Herrera, and Bernardo Roman III. After Lewis Tein had represented two members of the Miccosukee in a fatal car accident in 2009, the tribe and its lawyers went on to sue Lewis Tein and former tribal Chairman, Billy Cypress, for racketeering and embezzlement. Years of litigation resulted in severe sanctions for the tribe and its attorneys, including charges from the Florida Bar for perjury, for pursuing a frivolous lawsuit with virtually no evidence to support their allegations.

The complaint filed by the Florida Bar to the Supreme Court of Florida in January 2017 against Rodriguez lists the series of events in which he consistently made frivolous accusations against Lewis and Tein:

[Rodriguez] pursued his perjury and fraud claims against Lewis and Tein despite the fact that he knew, or should have known, that same were unsupported by competent evidence

Rodriguez’s’s frivolous pleadings continued, which included an unfounded garnishment case after being sanctioned for violating pre-trial orders.The complaint concludes that “By reason of the foregoing, Respondent has violated Rule 4-3.1(Advocate; Meritorious Claims and Contentions) of the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar.”
