The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has imposed a five year suspension of an attorney based on conduct that led to a conviction for aiding and abetting mail fraud.
The attorney, along with a client and others, participated in the submission of a fraudulent claim relating to a fictitious accident.
The Disciplinary Board had recommended disbarment. The court imposed the suspension nunc pro tunc to its earlier order of temporary suspension.
Madame Justice Orie Melvin (who has her own legal troubles) did not participate. (Mike Frisch)
