A Federal Judge For A Client

The Louisiana Disciplinary Board has recommended a six-month suspension with all but 30 days deferred of an attorney who had assisted former federal judge G. Thomas Porteous and his wife in filing a bankruptcy petition under the false last name "Ortous."

The board found that the attorney's intent was to avoid embarrassment to the client. He has no record of discipline in 24 years of practice, was remorseful and cooperative, and was not motivated by a desire for personal gain. (Mike Frisch)
