Travel Without Permission

The Michigan Attorney Discipline Board imposed a one year suspension of an attorney who had violated court orders and testified dishonestly in court proceedings. He had been held in criminal contempt and sought to appeal the conviction. The board found "abundant" evidence that he had traveled out of state without court permission, as a real estate developer had testified that he met with the lawyer in San Diego. He then misled the court concerning the California trip. The arguments of the lawyer as to the misconduct and discipline were deemed to be meritless. (Mike Frisch)
