The Minnesota Supreme Court accepted a joint recommendation and ordered that an attorney be transferred to disability inactive status. As a result, a pending disciplinary complaint was stayed. The complaint alleged that the attorney had made a series of 12 telephone calls to a client over an approximately one hour period. The purpose was to collect outstanding legal fees. The attorney allegedly:
made a series of statements that constituted harassment on the basis of religion and/or national origin, in violation of Minn. R. Prof. Conduct 8.4(g). Respondent stipulates that the factual allegations recited above are sufficient to support a finding that she violated the Rules of Professional Conduct.
