90 Days for Lying And Other Misconduct

The Minnesota Supreme Court has imposed a 90-day suspension of an attorney who agreed to the sanction.

The misconduct involved "submitting false evidence and making false statements to the Director's office; failing to notify a client about a hearing; lying to a court through an associate and failing to correct the misrepresentation he caused to be made to the court; failing to timely notify clients of their appeal rights and that he would not file an appeal on their behalf; and failing to diligently pusrue a client's case, communicate with that client, and timely return a client's property..."

I'd say a 90-day suspension is a pretty big break given the violations. (mike Frisch)
