Permission To Violate Conditions Denied
An attorney who had been reinstated to practice on conditions admitted to violation of the conditions by handling criminal cases without supervision or malpractice insurance.
He then sought to amend the conditions to allow for what he had already done.
The Delaware Supreme Court denied the petition
The Court is troubled that the petitioner returned to private practice in a manner that violated the Court's Order in substantial, myriad ways without first seeking leave of the Court to modify the conditions of his reinstatement.
Any such modifications must be based on good cause for the request and an affidavit showing full compliance with the imposed conditions. (Mike Frisch)
