Disbarment For Failure To Pay Support Obligation

At first blush, I was surprised to see an order from the Minnesota Supreme Court disbarring an attorney for failure to pay child support. However, there was more to the order than the fact of failure to pay. The attorney had pleaded guilty to a felony count of willful failure to pay and had "created and used false identification to avoid payment" of his obligations. The attorney had been subject to interim suspension for failure to to pay support and spousal maintenance and did not oppose the disbarment. (Mike Frisch).
