Ghostwriting by Suspended Attorney Leads to Permanent Loss of a Law License

The Legal Profession Blog tells us of a new decision from the Supreme Court of Iowa, where an attorney under an order of suspension was found to be "ghostwriting" pleadings.  The court condemned the ghostwriting as conduct involving dishonesty and deceit because the suspended lawyer concealed his participation in the case.  The suspended lawyer has now had his license revoked -- he had taken on the new case only 15 days after he had been suspended from law practice.

Hat tip to Mike Frisch of the Legal Profession Blog, where you also find a link to the Iowa Supreme Court decision.
