No Relief

An attorney convicted of, among other things, second degree murder was summarily disbarred by the New York Appellate Division for the First Judicial Department. The court declined to entertain the possibility of relief based on the attorney's claim that he had been wrongfully convicted. USAToday reports that the attorney was sentenced to a term of imprisonment from 25 years to life for arranging the murder of a client's spouse. (Mike Frisch)
