The Kansas Supreme Court has imposed a six-month suspension and "hoped this period of suspension, sooner rather than later, will impress upon respondent the seriousness of his situation and the necessity that he seek professional counsel and assistance in order to regain his ability to practice law."
The court quoted the hearing panel report concluding that the attorney's modus operandi was to "make threats as a matter of standard practice." He
went from collecting a fee to a personal vendetta. When [he] personalized the litigation, [he] showed a serious lack of professionalism...[He] must come to realize that if he continues to practice law, he will be repeatedly disappointed in the results of his cases as are all lawyers and he has to learn to live with that instead of setting out to punish all who disagree with him.
