From Reprimand To Disbarment

The Michigan Attorney Discipline Board has increased the sanction from a hearing panel's reprimand with conditions to disbarment.

The attorney had commingled and misappropriated over $7,000 in funds that he was holding pending distribution to the conservator of a legally impaired person. The funds were used for the attorney's general office expenses.

The sanction was appealed by the Grievance Administrator. The Board concluded that the goal of public protection required the ultimate sanction. (Mike Frisch)
