The web page of the North Carolina State Bar reports on recent discipline:
[An attorney] of Raleigh forged his wife's signature and affixed a false jurat to a deed of trust securing a loan he obtained to pay delinquent taxes. [He] did these things because he was afraid to tell his wife he owed back taxes. He did not intend to defraud the lender. The DHC suspended [him] for six months.
