What It Wasn't Was Football

The Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board has recommended a one-year suspension, with six months stayed and two years of unsupervised probation, of an attorney conviocted of domestic battery.

The board rejected charges of ethical violations in the attorney's purported efforts to persuade a witness to change her testimony, finding insufficient evidence.

The board's recitation of the procedural history is interesting.

The attorney was granted a hearing continuance in order to celebrate his 50th birthday in Texas. However, he was denied a second sought postponement because the hearing was set the day after an LSU national championship football game. (Mike Frisch)
