Update: felon-hiring W.V. attorney

by Walter Olson on October 2, 2008

Wheeling, W.V.: the West Virginia Supreme Court has annulled the law license of Mark Blevins, an attorney and candidate for county prosecutor who was accused in disciplinary complants of having solicited a convicted felon to procure a “throwaway” gun and to help him collect money from clients. (AP/Law.com; Wheeling News-Register). Our earlier post drew protests from readers who didn’t think it relevant whether the other party to the discussion was a felon or not.

Annulment is defined as void ab initio. The source artical correctly states that he was disbarred.

whoops! I incorrectly spelled article and the second source seems to report annulment.

Whoops again! The West VA Sct. uses the language “annulled”
