Turn Out The Light

Interim suspension is a powerful and important tool to protect the public from ongoing harm during the pendancy of disciplinary charges. The North Dakota Supreme Court ordered such a suspension six days after Disciplinary Counsel filed an application against attorney Robert M. Light stating that Mr. Light had several complaints of missed appointments and was generally unavailable to clients, as well as being subject to an investigation for "crimes of reckless endangerment, terrorizing and carrying a concealed firearm." There are also allegations of escrow account violations. The order will remain in effect until further court order pending final disposition of the ethics charges. (Mike Frisch)
