A Mockery In Nebraska

The Nebraska Supreme Court has disbarred an attorney who had practiced for over a decade on a suspended license. Over that period of time, the attorney engaged in "at least" 65 acts of dishonesty:

Every pleading, every court appearence, every meeting with a client constituted a separate act of dishonesty.

The court concluded that disbarment was appropriate because the attorney's conduct made a "mockery" of the disciplinary systems precepts of self-reporting and honesty. (Mike Frisch)
