Emotionally Frazzled

The Arizona Disciplinary Commission approved a proposed 30 day suspension followed by two years probation in a matter where the attorney had falsely advised a judge in a contentious custody matter that he could not proceed to a hearing because he was due to appear in another court. The judge checked and found that the representation was false. The attorney admitted the misconduct and asserted in explanation that he was "emotionally frazzled" and unprepared due to a fight with his wife the night before the hearing and the theft of his briefcase.
