New Jersey Supreme Court fails again
I have complained in the past about New Jersey's repeated failures to properly sanction unethical conduct. See here and here, for example. Today's example adds to the state's reputation for lax standards. In this case, the attorney was disbarred in New York in 2011 for commingling and record keeping violations that were deemed not small nor isolated. The attorney was later was also disbarred in Colorado, Pennsylvania and in Connecticut. But when it came to New Jersey, the New Jersey Supreme Court ordered a three-month suspension.
