Nix To Tix Fix II

The Louisiana Supreme Court accepted the recommendation of its Disciplinary Board and permanently disbarred a former assistant city attorney convicted of felony malfeasance in office. He had taken a $500 fee to represent a private client. The court concluded that permanent disbarment was appropriate where an attorney "fraudulently used his position as an Assistant City Attorney to dismiss DWI charges against his own client.

In the criminal case, he was sentenced to a suspended term of eighteen months in prison. (Mike Frisch)
