MySpace Misconduct

The South Carolina Supreme Court has disbarred an attorney who defaulted on a number of alleged ethics violations.

One charge in particular caught my eye:

[He] maintained a webpage on MySpace.com that contained profanity and nudity along with the name of his law firm and the city of its location; among his comments, Respondent stated he would "take the 5th" in regards to what drugs he had done in the past as well as which drugs he had done in the past week (The Disciplinary Counsel Matter).

Thanks for sharing. (Mike Frisch)
