A petition for the voluntary discipline of a Review Board reprimand was rejected by the Georgia Supreme Court. The attorney had represented herself in connection with personal injuries allegedly suffered in a 2003 three auto accident. The attorney submitted two documents to an insurer that were fabricated. The attorney admitted in the petition that the documents were fabricated but denied that she had done so herself. The court cited prior disciplinary cases where more severe discipline had been imposed for comparable ethics violations.
The State Bar and a special master had supported the petition. (Mike Frisch)
