Trailing Yew Out

An attorney was disbarred by the Supreme Judicial Court of Maine based on charges brought in two matters. The accused attorney did not appear to contest the allegations. One matter involved his conduct as trustee for a trust that had as its principal asset the Trailing Yew Inn, a seasonally-operated inn on Monhegan Island. The attorney was removed as trustee after several years where he had failed to make required distributions and had no explanation for "ever increasing" expenses. After removal, it was discovered that he had paid approximately $70,000 in trust assets to himself.

The second matter involved his failure to return the files of another attorney that were in his possession. (Mike Frisch)
