Another Probation Failure

The Louisiana Supreme Court revoked a probationary sanction in a matter involving an attorney who was granted probation initially because the court had concluded that the underlying misconduct was due to the lawyer's inexperience. The lawyer had failed to complete CLE requirements imposed as a condition of probation. The court had extended the requirements as a result of the disruption caused by Hurricane Katrina. The lawyer had exceeded the permissible number of hours that can be satisfied through "on-line" continuing legal education. (Mike Frisch)
