1.You are a LNC working for a criminal defense attorney. The case that you are working on involves defending a local physician who is alleged to have been diluting and adulterating medications before selling them directly to his patients. Agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration videotaped the doctor while he was diluting medications in his office after the close of business. This videotape is the best evidence against the defendant doctor who your supervising attorney is representing.
Before a pretrial hearing you observe a nurse employee of the defendant doctor approach the federal prosecuting attorney and talk with her in the parking lot outside of the local courthouse. The prosecutor happens to be holding the videotape and some other papers in her hand. You observe the nurse pull what appears to be a large magnet from her oversized purse and lean toward the videotape. You know that if the magnet makes contact with the videotape, it will erase the contents of the videotape.
As the LNC working for the defense of the doctor, what ethically should you do, if anything?
