The Louisiana Supreme Court has conditionally admitted an applicant for bar admission.
The court had directed that a character and fitness inquiry be conducted in light of an honor board proceeding that had taken place while the applicant was in law school. The investigation revealed that the applicant had defaulted on a debt owed to his bank.
The conditional admission is for two years. During the two year period, the newly-admitted attorney will be reqwuired to submit quarterly reports demonstating his financial responsibility. (Mike Frisch)
