A Truthful (but Nonresponsive) Response

The Wyoming Supreme Court has imposed a public censure of an attorney who failed to communicate with his client and was not prompt in responding to the ensuing bar complaint.

When disciplinary counsel wrote to remind him to respond, he sent a fax that ended with this explanation of the delay:

I so enjoy getting letters from the State Bar marked Personal-Confidential and I put it at the bottom of the pile instead of the top.

After another reminder, he gave a refund to the complaining client. (Mike Frisch)
