Get The Message

A New York attorney who had filed a motion for pro hac vice admission in a federal criminal case in Connecticut falsely concealed two prior instances of discipline in New York. He had been censured and formally admonished in the past. The referee found intentional dishonesty because the attorney had to create the document on his word processor and insert the information listing his places of admission. The referee recommended, and the First Department imposed, a six-month suspension, because the attorney did not "get the message" from the earlier disciplinary encounters. (Mike Frisch)
