Scurrilous, Untenable And Incomprehensible

The New Jersey Supreme Court has disbarred an attorney for misappropriation and other ethical violations.

The attorney had moved to vacate a default on the charges but the Disciplinary Review Board found that she had failed to reasonably explain the failure to answer and had not set forth a meritorious defense to the charges;

Rather than attempt to satisfy the [requirements to vacate default], respondent submitted a scurrilous attack on the OAE counsel handling the matter, an untenable interpretation of the Court Rules regarding service of ethical complaints, and circuitous -- and at times incomprehensible -- reasons why we should grant her motion and dismiss the complaint.

Disbarred. (Mike Frisch)
