From Missouri To Kansas

An attorney who had failed to respond to a series of bar complaints was disbarred by default in Missouri. The Kansas Supreme Court imposed an indefinite suspension as reciprocal discipline. The court found that a default in Missouri was a proper basis to impose discipline in Kansas. The court further ordered that the attorney may not seek reinstatement in Kansas until he obtains reinstatement in Missouri. Thus, the discipline imposed seems to be functionally equivalent to disbarment. (Mike Frisch)
