Attorneys obtained summary judgment in a legal malpractice action where plaintiff was exonerated for murder based upon DNA evidence after spending 18 years in prison

Attorneys obtained summary judgment in a legal malpractice action where plaintiff was exonerated for murder based upon DNA evidence after spending 18 years in prison. The plaintiff alleged that defendant, his former counsel in the post-conviction proceedings, stipulated to an inferior method of DNA testing which produced an inconclusive result and prevented his early release. The court granted summary judgment on statute of limitations grounds, finding that the statute begins to run upon the termination of the attorney-client relationship and not upon plaintiff's release from prison.
