Getting You Where You Live

A lawyer who was a former member of the Louisiana House of Representatives was suspended for six months with all but 60 days deferred in favor of unsupervised probation in a matter where the lawyer had been charged with providing a false "domicile address" on his certifed statement of candidacy for city council. The bar charges had been filed in the wake of a judicial decree that had declared him ineligible as a candidate for office on the New Orleans City Council.  A puiblished dissent would find the statements were not false and would impose no discipline, noting a distinction beween domicile and residence. Another dissent (without specifying reasons) would impose more severe discipline. (Mike Frisch)
