The Maryland Court of Appeals rejected the contention that discipline should not be imposed in a case where the accused attorney had contended that his conduct was unrelated to the practice of law. The attorney was also a licensed title insurance agent, which took 80% of his time and generated 80% of his income. The rest of his practice involved estate and real estate matters. He became involved in a contested matter that had both estate and real estate aspects. Entrusted funds were mistakenly released by him to his client. Here, the court reviewed de novo the question whether the conduct related to legal practice and concluded that it did. Indefinite suspension with the right to apply for reinstatement after 60 days.
