Reinstatement Standard Not Met

In Minnesota, a lawyer who has been suspended or disbarred cannot be reinstated unless there is clear and convincing evidence that the former lawyer has "undergone such a moral change and to now render [the lawyer] a fit person to enjoy the public confidence once forfeited." In a case decided yesterday, the Supreme Court denied reinstatement to an applicant who had written numerous checks on insufficient funds while suspended for misconduct that had included findings of misappropriation and failure to properly maintain trust account records.
