As Minnesota Goes, So Goes Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Supreme Court imposed the reciprocal discipline of license revocation of an attorney disbarred in Minnesota for misappropriation of funds due to his law firm. The court described the facts:

On October 14, 2009, [the] Attorney...pled guilty to one count of felony theft by swindle in an amount more than $35,000, in violation of Minn. Stat. ยง 609.52, subds. 2(4) and 3(1).  His guilty plea was based on his misappropriation of funds from the law firm where he worked as a partner.  Attorney...'s misconduct violated the Minnesota Rules of Professional Conduct.  The stipulation between Attorney...and the OLR states that by virtue of being disbarred by the Minnesota Supreme Court for his misconduct, Attorney Rothstein is subject to reciprocal discipline pursuant to SCR 22.22. Attorney...stipulates that he does not claim any of the potential defenses articulated in SCR 22.22(3)(a)-(c).  Attorney Rothstein stipulates to the revocation of his license to practice law in Wisconsin, reciprocal to the discipline imposed in Minnesota.
