Client Cannot Sue Lawyer for Losing Love-Theft Case

February 27, 1987|United Press International

DES MOINES — A man cannot blame his lawyer for losing a lawsuit that charged that his wife's dentist committed thievery when he stole her love, the Iowa Court of Appeals has ruled.

The court, in rejecting David Kunau's legal malpractice case against attorney James Pillers, said Wednesday that Kunau could not have won his suit anyway because legal precedent establishes that love between spouses is not property subject to theft.
