Trucking To Suspension

An attorney who engaged in multiple instances of driving under the influence exacerbated by flight from the scene and a false claim that his car was being driven by a stripper was suspended for three years by the Louisiana Supreme Court. He had endangered his young daughter by holding her in his arms as he vandalized the truck of his estranged wife's boyfriend with a shovel, breaking the truck's windows and doing body damage as well (which he also had falsely denied).

He also "...most significantly...attempted to disrupt the ODC's investigation by unjustifiably invoking constitutional protections and offering false testimony" in the bar proceedings. (Mike Frisch)

"[U]njustifiably invoking constitutional protections"? Can one ever be unjustified in invoking constitutional protections?
