Attempt To Circumvent Fee Cap Draws Stayed Suspension

The web page of the North Carolina State Bar reports:

[An attorney] of Raleigh deducted from his clients' Vioxx settlements purported expenses in amounts significantly greater than he actually incurred in an effort to circumvent the court's cap on attorney fees. The DHC imposed a two-year suspension. The suspension is stayed for five years.

The bar complaint is linked here. (Mike Frisch)
