Freedman v. Brutzkus

The appellate court held that when an attorney signs his name under the recital 'approved as to form and content' this recital indicates that an attorney is advising his or her own client of the attorney?s approval of the document?s form and content, but this recital does not, per se, operate as a representation to an opposing party?s attorney that can provide a basis for tort liability.
