"Obvious Disinterest"

The South Carolina Supreme Court disbarred an attorney for misconduct in connection with his high volume bankruptcy practice. The court noted:

We find the Panel's recommended sanction of disbarment is warranted.  By his default, Respondent has admitted to committing multiple acts of serious misconduct.  Respondent's conduct also indicates an obvious disinterest and indifference to the practice of law given he has left this jurisdiction and has not responded to this disciplinary action.  Furthermore, Respondent has an extensive disciplinary history involving:  a suspension from practicing in the Bankruptcy Court, a letter of caution from the Commission, a suspension by the Commission on CLE for failure to comply, and a suspension from this Court for failure to comply with CLE.
