Suspended Only From Appellate Practice

An Arkansas Committee on Professional Conduct panel imposed discipline on an attorney who had failed to file a timely appeal and brief in a criminal matter.

When the brief was filed, he failed to cite any authority for an argument that the evidence was insufficient or that the trial court had committed error.

One interesting aspect -- the attorney is suspended from appellate practice before the Court of Appeals and Supreme Court of the state for a period of twelve months. He will remain free to practice everywhere else in Arkansas. (MIke Frisch)
