False Evidence

The Illinois Review Board has recommended disbarment of a lawyer who had represented a client formerly known as Gloria Golden but now known as Glourious Swanson Greer-Tucker in a series of bankruptcy petitions. The lawyer was accused of converting the client's trust funds and had confirmed in testimony that he acted without authorization. After a Hearing Board recommended an 18 month suspension, the lawyer offered up two promissory notes that purported to bear the client's signature and grant him authority to use the funds. This was a separate prosecution from the conversion case, which did result in the 18 month suspension. In this case, the notes were found to be forged and the attorney's contrary evidence was rejected as incredible. (Mike Frisch)
