The Florida Bar has brought ethics charges against Ramon Manuel Rodriguez and Jose “Pepe” Herrera after years of false claims of perjury and fraud against Guy Lewis and Michael Tein in a series of cases related to the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians

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.”
