Disability Suspension

An attorney was recently suspended based on a determination that his delusional beliefs and statements demonstrated that he was not capable of practicing law or defending himself in the bar proceedings. Originally charged with a conflict of interest, the matter was converted into a disability proceeding after he made statements suggesting that, among other things, the "Christian Right Mafia, a Seattle law firm and his former law professors had fixed the disciplinary hearing" and that disciplinary counsel was an imposter. The Washington Supreme Court found sufficient evidence that the attorney's mental condition affected his ability to practice and placed the attorney on disability inactive status. (Mike Frisch)
