Assault Conviction Leads To Disbarment

An attorney who was convicted in Georgia of aggravated assault and had voluntarily surrendered his Georgia license was disbarred by the New York First Judicial Department. The assault was committed on the attorney's girlfriend with a vacuum, beer bottle and a mop. The items were recovered by the police with the victim's blood on them. He also had kicked the victim. New York found that the felony conviction automatically operated to disbar the attorney. (MIke Frisch)
