More Than An Oversight

An applicant for admission to the New York Bar failed to disclose that she had been disbarred in New Jersey. The Appellate Division for the Second Judicial Department denied the motion to amend the application and revoked her license to practice law:

As the Special Referee properly found, the respondent's omissions constituted a deliberate attempt to conceal from the Committee on Character and Fitness information which was clearly relevant, and which would have likely resulted in the denial of her application for admission to the Bar of the State of New York. Accordingly, the respondent's request for leave to amend her bar application is denied, and her admission to the Bar of the State of New York is hereby revoked and her name is stricken from the roll of attorneys and counselors-at-law.
