Short Suspension For False Testimony Under Oath

An attorney who had testified falsely under oath at a deposition was suspended for 90 days by the Minnesota Supreme Court. The testimony related to his employment compensation. A referee had proposed an indefinite suspension with the right to apply for reinstatement after six months suspension. The attorney had sought a private admonition, and had contended that there were no ethical violations because he had not knowingly testified falsely and that the statements at issue were not material. The court's order also requires him to take and pass the professional responsibility portion of the bar examination. (Mike Frisch)
