Maine Chance For F. Lee Bailey

Last Friday, the Maine Supreme Judicial Court found that famed but disbarred attorney F. Lee Bailey had "demonstrated the requisite good character and fitness to practice law in the State of Maine."

On motion to reconsider, the court found that his unresolved tax debt "although large" did not prevent admission. His "genuine effort" to resolve these issues demonstated his present character and fitness.

The court remanded the admission application to the Board of Bar Examiners with instructions to issue a certificate of qualification. (Mike Frisch)
