Comments on how disciplinary system does not work to protect the interests of those it is supposed to protect

The Legal Ethics Forum has a story on (and link to) a recent report that concluded the disciplinary system in Wisconsin is inadequate in a number of ways.  Mike Frisch, of the Legal Profession blog, has some thoughts on the same issue about the Washington DC system.  Mike's point is very interesting because it suggests the current system is apparently based on conflicting interests.  And, as I have said before in other contexts, I agree with him in that protecting the "dignity" of the profession should not be a standard used to make disciplinary decisions.
