Disbarment No Impediment To Further Charges

The Connecticut Supreme Court has held that disciplinary proceedings may properly go forward nothwithstanding the attorney's disbarment on unrelated charges. The allegations involved conduct that had occurred while the accused was still a member of the bar. The court reasoned that, because the accused was not permanently disbarred, it was appropriate to adjudicate the charges rather than wait for a reinstatement proceeding. (Mike Frisch)
