An attorney who had assisted former federal judge Thomas Porteous and his wife in a false bankruptcy filing has been suspended for six months by the Louisiana Supreme Court. The filings used false names. The attorney later corrected the falsity and the bankruptcy petitions proceeded.
The court noted that the attorney had no prior discipline and was cooperative. He testified in the impeachment proceeding brought against the former judge. (Mike Frisch)
