Michigan Follows Maryland

The Michigan Attorney Disciplinary Board agreed with a panel and affirmed an order of disbarment in a reciprocal discipline case from Maryland.

The attorney had knowingly and willingly misappropriated fnds while acting as of counsel to a Maryland law firm. He had deceived both his law firm and clients.

The panel rejected the attorney's argument that "the ABA Standards [for Imposing Lawyer Sanctions] somehow render disbarment inappropriate in Michigan."

The board found no basis to impose any lesser sanction as reciprocal discipline. (Mike Frisch)
