False Swearing

The Indiana Supreme Court has disbarred an attorney convicted of filing a false federal income tax return. The attorney had pled guilty to one of three counts charging the criminal violations. Disbarment was found to be the appropriate sanction for a felony that involves false swearing, which here was done with a selfish motive. Also relevant to sanction was the fact that the attorney had been disciplined for unrelated ethical misconduct on three occasions. (Mike Frisch)
