An attorney who made material misrepresentations in securities offerings relating to his gold mining interests was disbarred by the Kansas Supreme Court.
The court noted that the attorney's misrepresentations led to his obtaining control over $2.6 million of investor funds.
Further, the court found little or no mitigation. The attorney's expressions of remorse met deaf ears in light of the fact that he has only repaid $500 of the investors' $2.6 million. (Mike Frisch)
