Reinstatement With Probation

Minnesota has reinstated an attorney who had been suspended for six months for "engaging in a sexual relationship with a client and entering into a series of business transactions with the same client without written disclosure of the potential conflicts and without providing for fair and reasonable terms for the client." Presumably the business transactions did not involve sex. The attorney was placed on two years probation. Interestingly, one of the probationary conditions requires supervision by a licensed attorney who must sign a formal consent to supervise any client matter undertaken by the lawyer. (Mike Frisch)
