Dissent Suggests Bar's Credibility Damaged

The Florida Supreme Court has reinstated an attorney who took a disability suspension in 2005 while on disciplinary probation.

Justice Canady, joined by two colleagues, dissented:

The Florida Bar has correctly sought to prevent the reinstatement of this lawyer, who has demonstrated contempt for the law. It does damage to the credibility of The Florida Bar to reinstate a lawyer who so recently has flouted the federal income tax law and has otherwise shown a disregard for the requirements of the law.

The petitioner had not filed his 2007 and 2008 taxes until 2010. (Mike Frisch)
