The Kansas Supreme Court accepted an attorney's license surrender and ordered disbarment. The Court briefly summarized the pending charges as follows:
At the time the respondent surrendered his license, review was pending before the Kansas Supreme Court on the final hearing report in accordance with Supreme Court Rule 212 (2007 Kan. Ct. R. Annot. 317). The hearing panel found that the respondent engaged in a conflict of interest when he continued to represent a juvenile after he had inappropriate and unwanted social contact with the mother of the client, failed to provide a timely written response to the Disciplinary Administrator concerning the initial complaint, and engaged in other conduct that adversely reflected on the respondent's fitness to practice law.
Additionally, at the time review was pending before the court, a complaint was pending that alleged [the attorney] engaged in similar inappropriate and unwanted social conduct with another female client.
