Seeking Sex With Opposing Counsel Leads To Suspension
The Orlando (Florida) Business Journal reports a recent bar discipline action
[The attorney was] suspended for 60 days, effective Dec. 18. [He] was the subject of several Florida Bar disciplinary matters. He used improper evidence in a dissolution of marriage case, requiring him to pay opposing counsel’s fees in the matter. In another case, [he] apologized to another opposing counsel after she complained to the Bar regarding his unsolicited advances verbally and via electronic mail messages; in a third case, he had a consensual sexual encounter with a client he was representing in a pending dissolution of marriage case (Case No. SC13-1920).
