What It Was Was Football

The D.C. Board on Professional Responsibility has filed a recommendation for reciprocal discipline based on a sanction imposed in Colorado. The attorney had traveled from Denver to Georgia to attend a football game. Although he had a client in Georgia, the trip did not involve client-related business. The lawyer sought and obtained reimbursement for the trip from the firm in an amount in excess of $1,000. Shortly thereafter, he reported the misconduct to his firm and to the Colorado bar. Colorado had imposed a stayed 90-day suspension with requirements of counseling, double CLE and submission of all expense requests to his firm's managing partner.

Apologies to Andy Griffith for the title to this post. (Mike Frisch)

Love that bit. It is up there with some of Newhart's classics. Here is a link to a YouTube of the Andy Griffith football monolog.

Thanks for the link, Alan. It is a classic but you have to be an old geezer to remember it.
