Thrown Brick Results In Suspension

The Georgia Supreme Court has suspended an attorney until March 2013 for criminal conduct: "[The attorney], angry with his then-girlfriend who had thrown a brick that struck him on the arm, picked up the brick and threw it at her, striking [her] feet." He was given first offender treatment for the offense.

The court notes that such violations are generally sanctioned with disbarment. Here, a lesser sanction was imposed in light of mitigating circumstances that included no prior discipline and personal problems for which he has taken rehabilitative steps. (Mike Frisch)
