Moving On

A lawyer who was admitted to practice only in Utah was prosecuted for ethical violations and failed to participate in the proceedings. The Utah Supreme Court disbarred him. He then moved to Nevada, where he continued to engage in client-related misconduct and falsely claimed to be a member of the Nevada bar. The Nevada Supreme Court concluded that it had jurisdiction to consider the imposition of sanctions, and ordered the lawyer enjoined from further practice in Nevada and fined. Because there was information that the lawyer (who also did not participate in Nevada) had relocated to Arizona, the court directed that Arizona authorities be notified to be on the lookout.
