False CLE Statement Draws Reprimand

From the web page of the Virginia State Bar:

On September 22, 2010, a Virginia State Bar Fourth District-Section 1 Subcommittee issued a public reprimand with terms to [an attorney] for violating professional rules that govern knowingly making a false statement of material fact and conduct that reflects adversely on a lawyer's fitness to practice law. [The attorney] falsely certified that she had attended a mandatory continuing legal education teleconference. This was an agreed disposition of misconduct charges.

There are jurisdictions that would impose a much stiffer sanction for this kind of misconduct, unless there is significant mitigation not reflected in the discipline summary. (Mike Frisch)
