The Maryland Court of Appeals disbarred an attorney based on findings that he had committed prejury by filing false business reports under oath in bankruptcy proceedings and had flagrantly disobeyed court orders. The attorney had moved to Maryland after serving as an Associate General Counsel in the Office of the New York Comptroller.
One interesting point involves the trial judge's finding on how the lawyer gravitated to a debtors rights practice: " He elected to pursue this area because he was getting sued by creditors and...learned defenses available in credit card cases." (Mike Frisch)
