Conspiracy To Bribe Warrants Disbarment

The D.C. Board on Professional Responsibility has recommended the disbarment of an attorney convicted of conspiracy to pay a $40,000 bribe to a Mississippi state court judge. The attorney was a co-defendant in the criminal case against "Dickie" Scruggs. The board held that the conviction involved moral turpitude per se, which requires the sanction of disbarment in the District of Columbia. (Mike Frisch)
