DRIP

An attorney admitted in 1992 has been charged with misconduct in her own divorce by the North Carolina State Bar.

The marriage took place in October 2006. At the time, her spouse had an account with Duke Energy Dividend Reinvestment Plan {"DRIP") that he converted from his sole property into a joint asset.

The divorce was filed in Septemeber 2013. On December 18, 2013, an order was entered restraining the parties from disposing of marital assets. 

An allegation of the complaint is that, in January 2014, the defendant logged on to the DRIP website, changed the information and arranged to take a tad less than $30,000 out of said account.

Then, because the check had both names on it, she allegedly signed the spouse's name without authority.

There also are charges of false statements in litigation. (Mike Frisch)
