Make there be some speed bump against Bar complaints

I agree with most everything Norm says here, except that perhaps the amount of money one should have to pay to file a Bar complaint might be set at $50 for indigent defendants.

Bar complaints, in my experience, mostly seemed to come from a thought that if the lawyer can be burnt the defendant will get another shot. They seemed to start with people who got over 2 years and were almost a certainty when I had a client who got over 5 years. If there were a speed bump, like a $50 fee, perhaps they would file the habeas which they really want instead.
