A Louisiana hearing committee has found no misconduct in two matters charged by the Office of Disciplinary Counsel.
One matter involved allegations that the attorney engaged in unauthorized Colorado practice. The hearing committee found that she had responded to the Colorado district court's invitation for a submission and that she represented that she was the litigant's Louisiana attorney:
Suffice it to say, Respondent unknowingly stepped into the trap unwittingly divined by [the Colorado judge] by complying with his orders to provide further submissions to the court...
She had sought no relief from the Colorado court.
The findings in the other matter were ordered sealed by the hearing committee. (Mike Frisch)
