The Louisiana Supreme Court has denied reinstatement to an attorney whose conditional license was revoked in 2011.
Throughout this process, petitioner has attempted to evade responsibility for his misconduct by lying and deceit. He has filed false pleadings in this Court, and shaved his entire body and cut his fingernails to the quick in an unsuccessful attempt to avoid testing for cocaine (he tested positive).
Justice Clark dissents from the portion of the order that permits reapplication if the petitioner complies with the conditions of the 2011 order.
Among the conditions are a five-year contract with the Bar's counseling service including quarterly hair testing. (Mike Frisch)
