"Serious Failings" Draw 60 Day Suspension

An attorney convicted of misdemeanor grand theft in California has been suspended for 60 days by the Wisconsin Supreme Court:

We adopt the findings of fact and conclusions of law set forth in the referee's report and recommendation. Attorney...s' misconduct with respect to his California criminal conviction, his failure to notify the OLR and the clerk of this court of that conviction, and his failure to cooperate with the OLR's investigation are serious failings warranting a suspension of his license to practice law in Wisconsin. A 60-day suspension of his law license is appropriate discipline for his professional misconduct.

Chief Judge Abrahamson dissented, and called the sanction "inadequate." (Mike Frisch)
