Two Out, Two In

The Oklahoma Supreme Court ordered reinstatement in two matters, neither of which involved suspension for ethical misconduct. One lawyer had resigned voluntarily to relocate to his home state of Wisconsin. He satisfied the CLE requirements for reinstatement and established good moral character and present competence to practice. The other had been suspended for non-payment of bar dues. His reinstatement was ordered after a hearing before the Trial Panel of the Professional Responsibility tribunal.

The court also accepted the resignation of two attorneys (linked here and here) in the face of disciplinary charges, action that is characterized as tantamount to disbarment. (Mike Frisch)

The two lawyers whose resignations the court accepted each stole a lot of money. Each of them should go to jail.

Whenever I read about lawyers who steal or who do something else particularly horrible-especially over a period of time- I wonder who, if anyone, was in a position to have prevented it?

Isn't there something that other lawyers can do when they don't know but do suspect that a lawyer is floundering and is about to go under and to take someone else down with him?

My suggestion is Lawyers Concerned For Lawyers. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
