Eighteen Months Is Not Enough

The Georgia Supreme Court has rejected a second petition for voluntary discipline in a matter involving three disciplinary cases.

After rejecting a proposed suspension of six months, the court here turned thumbs down to eighteen months.

Although there were a number of mitigating factors, the court found that the attorney's "past disciplinary history remains a significant aggravating factor."

The prior history included a 1982 admonition, a 1985 public reprimand and a two-year suspension in 1992. Four non-suspensory sanctions havve been imposed since the 1992 suspension. (Mike Frisch)
