The North Carolina State Bar has instituted ethics charges against an attorney.
One of the two counts relates to his involvement as one of three partners of an entity called Atticus III, LLC.
The Bar alleges that the attorney concealed his use of a company credit card from his two partners and ran up charges for expenses unrelated to the business. The allegedly unauthorized charges were for a wide array of purchases, including gas, shoes, a variety of entertainments that included a spa, the monthly fees of an online dating service and National Tattoo Supply.
The charges amount to over $15,000. (Mike Frisch)
