Real Estate License Misuse, False Statements Draw Suspension

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has imposed a 90-day suspension as reciprocal discipline based on an Illinois sanction for the following misconduct:

Attorney M. obtained a Wisconsin real estate broker's license in 2008.  In 2009 Attorney M. used his Wisconsin real estate broker's license to enter a Kenosha, Wisconsin, condominium owned by his client's opponent in litigation, and obtained evidence that he later used in that litigation matter.  Attorney M. also made false statements to a police officer investigating [his] entry into the condominium.

Illinois had also suspended the attorney for 90 days. (Mike Frisch)

One thing is for sure, it is great to see at least one state standing up for what's right, and not letting a travesty of justice slip under the radar.
