Paint Job Leads To Proposed Suspension

The Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board has agreed with a hearing committee that an attorney had engaged in misconduct by misusing her position as a New Orleans Assistant District Attorney to threaten and coerce two people to pay a disputed civil debt. The efforts were made to have a payment made to a friend of the attorney's father for house painting services.

The board did not agree with the committee's proposed sanction of a public reprimand. Rather, the recommendation is for a six-month suspension with all but 30 days stayed. (Mike Frisch)
