Florida Bar moves to discipline attorneys in DUI setup

TAMPA (FOX 13) - The Florida Bar is moving forward to discipline three lawyers in the DUI setup of a courtroom rival.

The Bar says there is enough probable cause for disciplinary proceedings against Stephen Diaco, Robert Adams, and Adam Filthaut.

A special prosecutor found that Campbell's arrest was a setup, which also invoved Sgt. Ray Fernandez, who was the head of TPD's DUI squad.

Fernandez was eventually fired for his role in the setup.

Campbell and the three attorneys were on opposite sides of a high-profile defamation case between two Tampa morning radio hosts.

Prosecutors dropped charges against Campbell; the FBI is investigating whether his civil rights were violated.

The Florida Bar will file a formal complaint to the Florida Supreme Court. From there, the court will appoint a referee to look into the matter.

The Supreme Court then decides what happens to the attorneys.
