The Wisconsin Supreme Court approved a stipulated 60 day suspension with restitution in a matter that arose in the wake of the attorney's earlier temporary suspension for failure to cooperate with a disciplinary investigation. While suspended, the attorney appeared in four client matters, performing legal services on a contract basis for the State Public Defender. The stipulated charges involved unauthorized practice and dishonesty "by misleading the Jefferson County clerk of the circuit court about her license status..."
In an unrelated matter, the court reinstated an attorney who had been suspended for six months as a result of improper and undocumented billings to the public defender for work as a contract attorney. (Mike Frisch)
