Strike Three

The New York Appellate Division for the Third Judicial Department denied the third petition for reinstatement of a suspended attorney who now resides in Colorado. The applicant had been interviewed by three members of the court's Committee on Character and Fitness, who had filed a report recommending against reinstatement based on concerns about the applicant's debts, practice intentions and candor during the interview.

Short and sweet but not to the point. Would be nice if the Court explained itself.

Here is another case released today that is short and sweet:

In re Ephraim Ugwuonye, (D.C., 08-BG-1097, 30 October 2008)

The Court of Appeals suspended the attorney without any allegations or determination of misconduct. The sole prerequisite to discipline in the District of Columbia is the attorney’s suspension in a foreign tribunal. Yet D.C. Code § 11-2502 limits the Court to disciplining an attorney “for crime, misdemeanor, fraud, deceit, malpractice, professional misconduct, or conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice.” I don't see reciprocal discipline on the list. Am I missing something?

Swift justice. Only 50 days from beginning to end. I guess when you don't have to determine anything, the prcocess can be streamlined.
