Level Of Incompetence

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has denied the reinstatement petition of an attorney who had been suspended for misappropriation of client funds. The court accepted the report and recommendation of its Disciplinary Board, which had found that the attorney had made numerous errors and omissions in the reinstatement questionaire. The petitioning attorney had contended that the various problems with his answers (including providing an incorrect date of his admission to practice in Pennsylvania) "did not rise to the level of incompetence." The board and court concluded that he had failed to establish that he was fit to be reinstasted under the circumstances. (Mike Frisch)
