The Pennsylvania Supreme Court accepted an attorney's resignation and imposed consent disbarment in matters that involved the defense of civil cases assigned to him by his firm.
The charges (appended to the court's order) allege that the attorney ageed to submit matters to arbitration without the knowledge or consent.
He was unable to deliver the proceeds of the resulting arbitration awards and falsely stated that he was trying to "light a fire" under his allegedly shoe-dragging client.
He also was charged with false bilings. (Mike Frisch)
