No Disbarment In Light Of Recovery From Addiction

The Louisiana Supreme Court imposed a three year suspension, nunc pro tunc to December 8, 2000, in a disciplinary matter involving an attorney with "a long history of alcohol and drug abuse" who had been on disability inactive status since that date. While the appropriate baseline sanction for the misconduct was disbarment, the court considered the fact that he had remained free of alcohol and drugs since being admitted to treatment. He also is required to make resitution to his victims. (Mike Frisch)
