Two For The Price Of One

In a reciprocal discipline matter where the attorney had been reprimanded twice in Michigan, the Wisconsin Supreme Court held that a single reciprocal reprimand would suffice:

The only question that remains is whether the two Michigan public reprimands should be addressed in a single proceeding and opinion in this court or whether there should be two public reprimands.  The OLR urges that imposing a single reprimand will, as a practical matter, effectuate identical discipline under [pertinent rules]  and will promote judicial economy.  We conclude that since both of the disciplinary actions in the foreign jurisdiction were public reprimands and since we are explaining that receiving reciprocal discipline for both public reprimands, a single public reprimand encompassing both Michigan disciplinary actions is adequate.
