Limited Practice

The Delaware Supreme Court adopted an unusual sanction proposal in a case involving an attorney who had stipulated to a number of ethical violations. The attorney is publicly reprimanded and suspended for three months. He also may not be a notary public. Nothing out of the ordinary there. However, when he resumes practice, for the next five years that practice will be strictly limited to (1) residential real estate closings for a flat fee and (2) criminal matters. The Board on Professional Responsibility's report, explaining its rationale for the sanction, is attached to the court's opinion. (Mike Frisch)
