Suspended In Colorado, Disbarred In Maryland

An attorney who was suspended for a year and a day in Colorado was disbarred as reciprocal discipline by the Maryland Court of Appeals. The misconduct involved (1) the attorney's knowing failure to make pertinent disclosures concerning his interest in real property and related transactions in his personal bankruptcy and (2) false testimony in that proceeding.

The Maryland court noted that, while it is "inclined, but not required, to impose the same sanction" as the discipling court, an examination of Maryland precedent dictated a more severe result. (Mike Frisch)
