Fargo

It's a day for cases involving discipline against pistol packing lawyers. The North Dakota Supreme Court has a case scheduled for dispostion today in which the Disciplinary Board has recommended disbarment.

The attorney's issue on appeal:

Does the record support finding number 7 by the Hearing Panel that "Light carried a firearm or dangerous weapon concealed in his automobile and thereafter recklessly pointed a cocked and loaded automatic handgun at a Fargo police officer while Light was intoxicated?"

A report on the matter from the Bismarck Tribune is linked here. The attorney had been subject to interim suspension as a result of a related criminal conviction. (Mike Frisch)

And I assume that a wood chipper would also qualify as a "dangerous weapon," dontcha know.
