Legal Question

Asked on: 4/10/11, 5:32 pm

I filed a malpractice suit against an attorney for holding a casefile past the statue of limitations and at the court date the attorney announced he had filed bankruptcy. The case has temporarily been pulled from the docket pending the outcome of the bankruptcy hearing. Per the advise of Lawguru I researched and found that the attorney has malpractice insurance. My question is should I refile the lawsuit naming both the attorney and the malpractice insurance carrier or file just against the malpractice insurance carrier only? Thank you so much for your continued assistance!
