A witness who wrote an affidavit for the plaintiff later admits, privately, that he was coerced by plaintiff to write false testimony, and asks the plaintiff's attorney to file another affidavit where he will recant
the previous, admitting that he wrote it under pressure and therefore did lie, but he would like to tell the truth.The plaintiff's
attorney would not let him do so, saying that his client would then certainly lose the case. Is this legal or ethical for the attorney to do? At that point, the attorney would seem to know that his client is not telling the truth.
