The Louisiana Supreme Court disbarred an attorney who had facilitated the unauthorized practice of law by an unlicensed employee. The employee represented clients in depositions and participated in settlement conferences. The conduct took place after the employee had graduated from law school and passed the bar, but admission had not been granted on character and fitness grounds.
We recently had reported that the court had denied bar admission to the employee based on its findings of unauthorized practice. (Mike Frisch)
