Bold Cavalier

An attorney who instructed his support staff to sign and falsely notarize his name to multiple affidavits in mortgage foreclosure filings  was suspended for 90 days by the Maryland Court of Appeals.

Judge Adkins concurred and dissented, concluding that the misconduct was somewhat less serious than in a prior case where an attorney had not reviewed falsely signed affividavits. Here, the attorney had reviewed each documents.

Judge Adkins noted the volume of false affidavits and the attorney's "cavalier" attitude. (Mike Frisch)
