A Family Matter

The Minnesota Supreme Court ordered the disbarment of an attorney who had engaged in a pattern of misrepresentations, misappropriation, conflicts of interest and the creation of false documents. The court termed the case "unusual" as it had previously ordered the disbarment of the attorney's spouse, who also had engaged in some of the misconduct at issue here. The court noted that the referee had concerns about the attorney's mental health but found that no evidence had been presented in that regard that would mitigate the sanction. (Mike Frisch)
