The Civil Suspense File

The Georgia Supreme Court disbarred an attorney who had defaulted on two complaints alleging that he had let civil complaints be dismissed with prejudice and had failed to advise the clients concerning the dismissals. The case is unremarkable except for the charming terminology of the Georgia courts: one of the cases had been placed on the "civil suspense file...with leave for the case to be reopened if not settled." I guess I'd be nervous if my case was on the civil suspense file. (Mike Frisch)
