The New York Appellate Division for the Third Judicial Department today imposed reciprocal discipline based on the lawyer's resignation from the Florida bar. The resignation was a result of a criminal conviction in federal court for a racketeering offense.
Nothing unusual here except that the conviction and resignation took place in 1993. The cause of the delay was the failure of the attorney to notify New York of the conviction and resignation. (Mike Frisch)
