An attorney who agreed to undertake a wrongful termination case against the Commerce Bank was disbarred by the Kansas Supreme Court. The attorney had first met the client in Sharp's 63rd Street Grill in Kansas City , Missouri.
The attorney was not admitted in Missouri, where the case needed to be filed. He used the retainer for his own purposes and never performed the services for which he had been retained. He also had his license suspended three times for non-compliance with registration and CLE obligations. (Mike Frisch)
