Ex-Detroit Mayor Rebuffed

The Michigan Attorney Discipline Board yesterday denied the petition of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to set aside an order of bar license revocation issued on October 31, 2008. He had argued that his criminal plea agreement indicated he would "surrender" his law license without defining that term. Thus, he contended, he had resigned "under objection" and sought to set aside the revocation. The board found that he had unambiguously agreed to revocation and that the resulting order had not been erroneously entered. (Mike Frisch)
