The Louisiana Supreme Court has permanently disbarred an already-disbarred attorney.
Prior to his 2002 disbarment, the former attorney accepted a non-attorney position with WorldCom. He then was moved into an in-house general counsel position in 2001. He did not advise his employer of the disbarment and continued to practice law.
When WorldCom was acquired by Verizon, the unauthorized practice copntinued for approximately eight more years. (Mike Frisch)
