Conviction Results In Automatic Disbarment

An attorney who was convicted of conspiracy to obtain fraudulent student visas and inducing aliens to reside unlawfully in the United States as well as related substantive offenses was disbarred by the New York Appellate Division for the Second Judicial Department. The attorney had been serving as director of foreign students at Morris Brown College in Atlanta, Georgia.

The court imposed the automatic disbarment for a felony conviction (here under federal law) that has an equivalent felony under New York law. The New York felony was filing a false instrument in the first degree. (Mike Frisch)
