Suspension For Probation Violation

An attorney who had been suspended for 60 days and reinstated subject to a two year probationary period was suspended for a minimum of six months for failure to comply with the terms of probation and failure to cooperate with disciplinary counsel. The Minnesota Supreme Court rejected the "contention that where there are no underlying ethical violations, an attorney should should not be sanctioned for failing to cooperate with the [bar counsel]... Rather, [the attorney] utterly failed to cooperate in the performance of stipulated terms of probation, terms that [he] agreed to not once, but twice, in the original stipulation and in the stipulation extending probation."
