Making Matters Worse

The New York Appellate Division for the First Judicial Department rejected as unduly lenient a proposed sanction of an attorney who had neglected two matters for the same client, lied to the client and testified falsely before a disciplinary committee. The attorney had corrected the false testimony after being confronted by a letter that impeached his version of events. The court concluded that the misconduct required a one-year suspension.
