Non-Organic Tomato Selling Scheme Draws Reprimand

An attorney who had entered into an organic tomato growing business with a longtime client has been reprimanded by a Committee on Professional Conduct panel of the Arkansas Supreme Court.

When the organic crop failed, the attorney entered into a scheme to buy non-organic tomatos and falsely label and sell them to customers as organic. The committee found 103 willful violations.

The client has undergone a sex change and is now employed with the IRS as a revenue agent. The panel's opinion refers to the client as "Mr." of "Ms." depending on the time.

The Arkansas Times has this report. (Mike Frisch)
