An attorney involved in misconduct in Mississippi has been permanently disbarred in Louisiana:
Here, the record demonstrates that respondent secured bank loans for two Mississippi state court judges, purportedly for campaign expenses. Thereafter, in an effort to conceal the fact that he was paying off the loans himself, respondent used cash and third-party intermediaries to disguise the true source of the loan payments. In exchange for this financial assistance, respondent subsequently received extremely favorable rulings from the judges in cases he filed in their courts. This conduct amounts to blatant corruption of the judicial system, and will not be tolerated by this court.
