The Michigan Attorney Discipline Board has reduced a panel disbarment to a three-year suspension of an attorney who had "failed to update his affidavit of p[ersonal history in support of his [bar admission] application..."
The attorney graduated in 1998 and was denied Michigan admission in 2001. He renewed the application in 2006 and was "required, as are all applicants, to acknowledge in his own handwriting that he had a continuing obligation to immediately inform the Standing Committee on Character and Fitness if any of the answers in his personal history affidavit included with his answers ceased to be true."
He failed to update a 2009 criminal charge and a personal protection order served on him. He also did not advise of a 2009 citation for leaving an accident scene. (Mike Frisch)
