A Louisiana Hearing Committee has recommended that a disbarred attorney be permanently disbarred.
The attorney was working at WorldCom in an non-lawyer position. He began working as an attorney there in 2001. He was disbarred for unrelated misconduct in 2002. He did not advise his employer and practiced as in-house counsel.
After the Verizon takeover, he was promoted to the position of Associate Counsel in 2003. He continued to engage in practice and never advised his employer of his earlier disbarment. (Mike Frisch)
