An Agreed Disposition

A Virginia lawyer who let three criminal appeals "fall through the cracks" leading to dismissal reached an agreement with Bar Counsel for a public reprimand with a requirement that the attorney take six hours of continuing legal education. Pretty lenient, particularly in light of the fact that Virginia has substantial CLE requirements for all its lawyers that did not seem to prevent this misconduct. Wonder if the victims of the misconduct are satisfied with this result. (Mike Frisch)
