Conversion From Law Firm Draws Suspension

The Minnesota Supreme Court has approved a jointly-recommended suspension for a minimum of 90 days in matter in which the attorney admitted "conversion and civil theft of property belonging to [his] former law firm and breach of fiduciary duty..."

In order to be eligible for reinstatement, he must file an affidavit certifying CLE compliance and pass the professional responsibility portion of the state bar exam. He also must cause any firm in which he has an ownership or management role to comply with certain state filing obligations.

The web page for the attorney's firm is linked here. He appears to be the attorney who represented the boat owners in the Minnesota Viking cruise affair. (Mike Frisch)
