In an unpublished opinion, the California State Bar Court Review Department has recommended a two year suspension with all but 90 days stayed of an attorney ho had allowed his office assistant to sign his name to pleadings from July 2005 to February 2007.The misconduct involved a false statement to a court that inquired about the practice.
The attorney denied misconduct but offered this explanation of the practice: "[i]t's just easier for me to do that. I don't like details. I leave the details to her." (Mike Frisch)
