The Wrong Place

The New York Appellate Division for the Third Judicial Department has imposed a one year suspension of an attorney for an incident that took place in the court clerk's office in October 2005.

The attorney had asked for a copy of her application for admission file: Then "[s]he engaged in inappropriate conduct at the office, resulting in her arrest and her being charged with obstruction of governmental administration and disorderly conduct." The criminal charges are pending.

The attorney did not appear at the disciplinary hearing. The referee described her behavior as "explosive and inexplicable." She has since made "unsubstantiated accusations against this Court."

Business Management Daily previously reported on the attorney's lawsuit against her former employer, DLA Piper. (Mike Frisch).

Why did the Third Department feel it necessary to act before the criminal prosecution had completed?
