Attorneys face discipline for DUI setup during shock jock trial

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) - Three Tampa attorneys involved in a DUI setup scandal against another attorney found themselves in more trouble Tuesday.

Attorney Stephen Diaco and two other attorneys from the Adams and Diaco law firm will face discipline from the Florida Supreme Court.

FOX 13 confirmed the Florida Bar sent a formal complaint to the high court.

The bar said Diaco broke nine code of conduct rules, including unlawfully destroying, concealing and altering evidence.

Last fall, a special prosecutor determined Phil Campbell’s DUI arrest was a setup.

They said it was orchestrated by rival attorneys representing Bubba "the love sponge" Clem in a defamation lawsuit filed by Todd "MJ" Schnitt.

Campbell’s DUI charge was eventually dropped.

Diaco and the other attorneys face fines or possibly being disbarred.
