Not Single

The web page of the North Carolina State Bar reports the following disciplinary action involving a state General Assembly representative:

Charlotte lawyer Nikita Mackey was reprimanded by the Grievance Committee. Mackey listed his martial status as "single" on a bankruptcy petition when he was in fact married. He was found in criminal contempt of court for failing to appear at his criminal client's trial. He failed to comply with the State Bar's subpoenas for production of state tax records.

The attorney also faces disciplinary charges that are linked here. His answer is linked here. Fox Charlotte reports that there has been a delay in the proceedings. (Mike Frisch)
