A Louisiana Hearing Committee has recommended the reinstatement of an attorney suspended in January 2005:
The Committee believes Petitioner shows sincere remorse in his previous misdeeds. Though there was initially some language problem at the hearing, the Committee is convinced that once Petitioner was told what the word "remorse" meant that he did show proper remorse for his prior actions and indicated that they would not occur again. Petitioner now realizes that his attempt to file suit and the Disciplinary Board and Charles Plattsmeier was a grave misdeed. He has testified that the Petition was dismissed procedurally and was never re-filed, nor would something like that be re-filed by him in the future.
The committee proposes that petitioner be required to practice under the supervision of another lawyer for at least a year. (Mike Frisch)
