The End Of My Era
When I left Bar Counsel in July 2001, I did not suspect that cases I had prosecuted would still be pending in December 2007. Well, The District of Columbia Court of Appeals ended my career as a bar prosecutor with a decision issued this morning. The case involves charges of dishonest billing against a partner at a major firm. The hearing was held on July 7-8 and 13-14, 1998 and, as the court notes in its decision, the facts were largely undisputed. One might wonder why such a case took the disciplinary system over nine years to resolve. I will have a lot to say on that subject, and other observations, but I will wait until the time for rehearing or rehearing en banc expires.
