Information Please

There are two bar discipline matters currently being live- streamed before District of Columbia Hearing Committees.

One case apparently involves alleged mishandling of a bankruptcy matter; the other apparently involves allegations of unauthorized communications with a represented person.

I say "apparently" because when one googles the names of the Respondents in both matters, the web page says as follows

"0 results"

The Specification of Charges in both matters are public records that should be readily available to any interested observer.

Transparency fails when a bar web page has significant gaps in posting information concerning matters of public interest.

My many years of pointing out this issue to the responsible persons have made me the Cassandra of the D.C. Bar.

Update: The charges are now posted in both matters. (Mike Frisch)
