Cease And Desist

An attorney was found in criminal contempt "for engaging in law-related activities while employed by the same law firm for whom he worked" when he was convicted of bank fraud and disbarred on consent in 2003. The courts, rather than the Pennsylvania Bar Disciplinary Board, have the exclusive authority to adjudicate and punish such contempts. The former attorney was fined $1,000 and prohibited from applying for readmission until August 3, 2008 by order of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The date for reapplication recommended by the board was August 3, 2010. (Mike Frisch)
