An interesting decision from the Vermont Professional Conduct Board concludes that a Vermont lawyer had not properly handled the recordkeeping requirements with respect to the lawyer's escrow account. The attorney is admonished and placed on probation for a six-month period subject to specified conditions. Notably, the identity of the attorney is kept confidential.
