Personal Foul

The Maryland Court of Appeals has disbarred an attorney who accepted a fee of $20,000 to file a habeas corpus petition on behalf of an inmate incarcerated in Lewisburg Penitentiary.

The attorney placed the fee in a personal account, failed to perform the services or refund the fee, charged an excessive fee  and ignored the disciplinary process.

The attorney apparently has a fall-back profession: she is listed as a member of the D.C. Divas, a womens professional football team. (Mike Frisch)
