Hearing First, Sanction Later

The New York Appellate Division for the Third Judicial Department has rejected the motion for summary disbarment of an attorney who was convicted in New Jersey of aggravated assault in the third degree.

The court held that there is no comparable felony under New York law, which is necessary to impose summary disbarment. However, the offense is a "serious crime" and warranted an  interim suspension pending final disciplinary action. (Mike Frisch)
