The Vermont Supreme Court has disbarred an attorney as reciprocal discipline based on an order of disbarment from the New Hampshire Supreme Court.
The attorney had been convicted of a criminal offense involving his attempt to persuade a witness in a criminal proceeding to withhold evidence.
The attorney had attempted to resign from the Vermont Bar but failed to comply with governing procedural requirements. The court concluded that disbarment was the appropriate sanction given the gravity of the offense.
Hope he's not admitted in D.C. See below. (Mike Frisch)
