No Waiver, No Reinstatement

A petition for reinstatement filed by an attorney who had been suspended for 18 months for serious ethics violations (not described in the order) was denied by the Georgia Supreme Court. The attorney had been found to suffer from significant mental health problems. The court found that the failure to continue a treatment regimen with a board certified psychiatrist and the unwillingness of the attorney to execute a waiver providing access to treatment records militated against the restoration of the law license. These conditions for reinstatement had been set forth in the court's earlier order. (Mike Frisch)
