Your Russ Adler Update!

 

First Kimmy and now this, hot off the Florida Supreme Court's state-of-the-art linotype machine:
With regard to the length of the suspension, Respondent asserts that the referee’s recommended sanction of a thirty-day suspension is supported. The Bar argues that a ninety-one-day suspension is appropriate. In light of Respondent’s misconduct in seeking, from his law firm, a letter with false information about his position and financial status, and given his deliberate false statements to the cooperative apartment board, we find that a ninety-one-day suspension is appropriate.
Ok, maybe it's just me but these findings don't seem that terrible -- misleading a NY co-op board about the extent of your financing of the apartment, claiming to own 20% of RRA, not getting lawyer signatures on client settlement statements -- I'm not saying you should get a free pass for this, but I guess I was expecting more explosive stuff.
