The Iowa Supreme Court found that an attorney's neglect of several probate matters showed "remarkable consistency" and imposed a 30 day suspension.
The attorney was admitted in 1988 and had no prior discipline. His neglect prolonged the cases at issue in the bar proceedings, two of which took seven years to resolve. He will be automatically reinstated unless the Disciplinary Board objects.
Notably (and I don't recall seeing this in a prior bar discipline case), the attorney once served as a bar admission examiner. (Mike Frisch)
