    That should be an offense worthy of disbarment.

    The sad thing is that if the Trooper was the one caught in a lie, he would have lost his job.

    And he would have been sued by the lawyer for a bazillion dollars.

    Not a very good one......and a 6 month suspension isn't nearly enough.

    That was just a slap on the wrist. He should have been disbarred permanently. Also arrested for filing a false police report and fined the cost of the NJSP investigation.

    I know our chief would have likely had charges filed for false reporting. He's tired of nonsense like this and if he has video to support the officer, he will go full forward.

    We have an attorney who is a druggy around here, been arrested a handful of times over the past few years. . .and STILL allowed to practice law! A lawyer would have to commit murder before these boards would disbar one of their own!

    It's not disbarment, but it's a big deal for a professional. It will be a permanent part of his license history, in most states available with a minimal amount of google-fu. He will have to explain it every time he seeks admission to the bar of a new state or seeks to appear pro hac vice. And it may prevent him from being employed as a lawyer anywhere except private practice or a "less than top rate" firm.

    OK, so this guy went to college. Went to law school. Graduated law school. Completed the ethics requirments. Passed the ethics requirement test. Passed the bar. Practiced law.

    Then he goes and (1) lies about his speeding, and (2) makes racial allegation with the sole intention to benefit himself financially (don't have to pay fine, no increase in insurace).

    He certainly didn't seem to give a hoot about the Trooper with his ugly lies.

    Which raises the question of how often he's lied in court while acting as an attorney?

    He needs to be disbarred permently.

    I wonder how deep his pockets are. Defamation, emotional stress, slander? libel? both?

    Sue him. "It's about the principle."

    I'm pleasantly surprised that anything at all was done.

    Maybe he thinks of himself as a "J.. K..." and was upset that he got caught. :rofl: That is really pretty funny. He was stupid enough to not think he was being recorded. :rofl: I saw an attorney go to court over a speeding ticket and tell the judge that he had a clean record. The judge had computer access which showed numerous driving offenses..lawyer was disbarred for lying to the judge. This guy got off easy with just a suspension. Can you imagine the teenagers giving him crank phone calls now..:faint:
