“Brooklyn attorney disbarred for ‘severe and gross’ violations”

by Walter Olson on January 16, 2013

“A Brooklyn attorney was disbarred Wednesday for a range of misconduct, from fabricating court orders to making misrepresentations to secure third-party litigation funding. … ‘The severe and gross violations committed by the respondent fully merit the special referee’s conclusion that the respondent is “morally corrupt and intellectually bankrupt,”‘ the appellate court wrote in a per curiam opinion.” [Reuters; Mr. Tanella's happier, award-winning days]

The surprise is that this is news.

I would imagine, Hogbody, that the novelty is that he was disbarred instead of being appointed a judge.
