One Angry Man

The California State Bar Court Review  Department has recommended the disbarment of an attorney who as a trial juror had engineered the conclusion of a medical negligence trial in order to break a deadlock and return to his law practice. The misconduct was exacerbated by false explanations of his behavior to the judge.He had both denied the misconduct and offered a variety of procedural challenges to the findings of misconduct. The review department noted that he already was serving a suspension for unrelated misconduct. (Mike Frisch)
