Kansas Disbars Diaz

The Kansas Supreme Court has disbarred former Navy attorney Matthew Diaz as a result of his court martial conviction for passing information to an attorney defending Guantanamo Bay detainees.

The information was sent anonymously to an attorney for the Center for Constitutional Rights in a Valentine's Day card.

The court rejected the suggestion that his reason for doing so should result in a lesser sanction, noting his own testimony that his motive was selfish.

A minority of the court would impose indefinite suspension. (Mike Frisch)
