Related Reinstatement Cases

The New York Appellate Division for the Second Judicial Department entered two virtually identical orders of reinstatement (linked here and here). The attorneys had the disciplinary matter heard by the same referee and were both suspended  for two years on the same date. Both were investigated by the Committee on Character and Fitness on identical issues (their means of support while suspended, a legal fee of $37,553 for work performed and billed prior to suspension, and whether other bars were notified of the New York suspension) and even have the same last name. Both were reinstated effective immediately. (Mike Frisch)
